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 6.3 runs under Virtual PC 2004, not VMware

kind of a bummer since it means I need to boot windows to run it in a sandbox. It has both Voyager and Mozilla 6.3 for web browsing and has its own PPPoe dialer and DHCP so broadband connections should be a breeze.
It's a bit slow running under emulation but that may be the fault of VirtualPC. I've used earlier QNX products including their OS-on-a-floppy and I've always been impressed.
Once I've freed up enough space, I'll try a laptop install
