QNX The QNX RtP 6.1.0 microkernel (which also runs on PCs) and its Photon micro GUI have been ported to the Compaq PDA solution, the iPaq. The screenshots look very attractive indeed, we just hope that the QNX team add some more software in it, like a Calendar, Contacts or a Todo list which are undoubtly, very useful applications for a PDA.

Maurizio Ferreira said: 'This is the only OS that deserves such a name. It's simple, modular and well thought. We will see it more and more in the next years. Let's develop some great application.' Well thought out when compared with Linux but not when compared with BeOS I'd say. Anyway, you have to go into 'Linux mode' to get more than a few apps for it which defeats the purpose of the design being well thought out.
