QNX When Research In Motion unveiled its BlackBerry Playbook tablet on Monday, including the new QNX-based operating system it runs, I already speculated that it would probably make its way onto RIM's smartphones as well. RIM has now confirmed this suspicion.

Completely untrue that Adobe and QNX are friends. I have my own experience to vouch for this. See if you can get Adobe to port AIR to QNX, for instance.

Make no mistake - QNX is riding the coattails of other, more popular, operating systems to get Flash functionality.

Thom, you can go ahead and install QNX on desktop systems. It hardly requires any knowledge whatsoever - and is easy to set up as it supports x86. Please, just stop being such a blind fanboy. If you're going to editorize something through OSNews, please - get some experience as opposed to relying on theory.

Theory is that Betamax is better than VHS too.
