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.

I would say you're probably correct. There are a lot more instances of inappropriate OS choice, then we would really like to know. I have a nightmare that one day I'll wake up in a hospital and have my breathing machine bluescreen.

Linux is more acceptable to me in some of those use cases, as another poster posted its making its way in there. But if you ask me what I want to run the breathing machine I'm hooked up to, I'd prefer it to run Qnx.
