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.

Re: Install it on a 950MB partition?

Yes it is possible. QNX doesn't take much HD space. Once you have installed the base, you can then select some extra packages to be installed from a repository (on-line or in a CD).

When I was using 6.2, I only had about 300mb partition available for it .... Sure, it was a bit thight, but it's depending on what you will be using it for.
