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.

That is a crying shame, it really is! :/

A microkernal is the way to go, and the AmigaOS has such a kernal. I realize QSSL has the target of imbedded market, but with very little work QNX RTOS would be a fantastic desktop environment.
