PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless Fascinating stuff, but not entirely unexpected. As most of you will know, BlackBerry maker Research In Motion is working on a tablet dubbed the BlackPad, and according to several sources reporting to Bloomberg, the device will ship with software written by QNs Software Systems, which RIM purchased earlier this year.

You really don't like QNX, do you? I'm genuinely curious, did you have a bad experience with it in the past?


It's a proprietary operating system that overlaps completely with several open alternatives (Linux, BSD). I don't see a reason to "hate" it anymore than I see reason to hate OS/2, but I don't see a reason to boost it either.
