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.

Interesting article, but why use QNX for the desktop?
QNX Neutrino is a RTOS. The normal desktop environment does not require a RTOS, and does not really benefit from it, or the microkernel architecture. RTOS are used where they are needed, embedded systems, mission critical system, and in special cases in some form of a desktop systems. QNX is not intended to be used on a normal computer, for normal use. Use Linux or MacOS for that instead.
