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.

Detailed, entertaining review. Nice one. Last time I tried QNX was, ooooh, when 6.2 came out -- hugely impressed by the performance and slick GUI. The usual lack of drivers and native apps that afflicts most non-mainstream OSes, but still worth playing around with nonetheless.
