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.

Amiga and QNX are cool OSes

I wonder why Peter thinks VM for QNX RTP is a dirty hack. Actually the OS is very scalable and clean every desktop feature can be added in a very clean way. Many applications don`t use VM because they are designed to runs efficiently without it! They don`t need it. Quake III does need virtual memory on QNX RTP because it is designed to use loads of memory. Also note that the BeOS filesystem guys has a job a QNX Software Systems nowadays. The clean design of QNX RTP allows it to use other filesystems without problems. Note that QNX is a configurable priority driven OS. You can give GUI tasks a higher priority just like Amigas have.
