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.

Hate Linux/Unix now

Have a look at QNX ! It runs better then all other X-OS. Forget the f.....g(sorry) KDE and whatever Desktop. All these
things are to slow. QNX is fast. Why not Unix/Linux?

The Photon micro GUI works faster then every windowmanager on x-window systems.
Mozilla and Thunderbird are not native programms. They come with there own GUI --> like the windows version :-(

QNX6.3 new browser voyager2 works with mozilla rendering engine and looks like a QNX-application.It's fast starting but it renders windows scrollbars and radiobuttons (in forms).

QNX will never be a desktop OS because the QNX company doesn't want this.
