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.

This is why anyone who has used any sorts of alternative operating systems knows better than to depend on their systems being around long term, unless they are released under a true open source license.

How many times do we need to watch promising operating systems disappear once the companies behind them go away before we get wise to this?

SkyOS, BeOS, QNX, etc, etc...

(I'm sure others can extend that list greatly!)
