QNX As of April 2010, a silent change was made on Foundry27, users with a myQNX account could no longer checkout/update their copies of the QNX SVN repositories and a vague Wiki page was created "detailing" some licencing clarifications.

Proprietary

RIM has nothing to gain by meddling with this proprietary crap (even if the proprietary crap is something they own). Going your own, proprietary way pays off if you have an established position already (Apple).

If I was RIM, I would dump the other stuff they've got, adopt MeeGo/Android and add their proprietary email stuff on top of that. They could cut most of their R&D expenses that way.

Actually, HP could have done the same thing instead of dumping the money on Palm, but money moves in mysterious ways...
