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.

QNX could rock with very little work...

QNX is a great OS. It is a real time OS, and I have used it as one of the many OS's that I tinker with. With just a little work it could flat out kick ass. Voyager is a moot point because both FireFox and Opera are available for QNX. Porting Linux apps to QNX requires nothing more than a recompile...period! However, drivers are another issue alltogether. That is where problems may arise. It seems that many here have never used QNX RTOS, thus you don't hava a clue! Any Linux app can be ported to QNX with nothing more than a recompile, nothing more but you have to have the QNX compiler.
