QNX I think that everyone reading OSNews will have heard at least something about QNX. You can regard this article as an introduction, but also as a review, and as a "Is-QNX-Ready-For-The-Desktop? article". To start off, I put together a short explanation of the merits of using a microkernel. Let me start off by saying that QNX Software Systems (QSS) does not aim towards the desktop with their Neutrino RTOS.

The worst thing that may happen to QNX is the same thing that happened to BeOS. Although this seems to be very unlikely, this recent buyout and main GUI designer departure mean that QSSL doesn't care anymore. And this is just gross! Because QNX has this charisma, that perhaps only BeOS (again) used to have... Everyone who used it and tried writing apps for it knows that. I wish someone with desktop-oriented business would have bought QSSL, not Harman.
