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.

This one is a strange bird.

I've worked with a guy who deploys systems for hydro power, natural gas wellhead controls, diesel engine monitoring and is currently working on a vehicle mounted astral telescope system project. They've very successfully redeployed from rtos to linux several years ago. The biggest reason? Cost control. And it works. One customer forced them to use windows as the controller, at that time they had to rewrite the whole windows scheduler to get it stable for real time monitoring (9 month effort).
