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.

The Sept 2000 release of QNX RTP was a beta release. QNX6 only came to official life at the release of patch A in Jan 2001. My comments were more of a reaction to the "well thought out" comment. It is probably fair to a certain extent to dislike qnx because QSSL made design tradeoffs that made everyday desktop use difficult --- even that should be limited because QSSL never market qnx6 as a desktop OS. But it is totally unfair to diss QNX's deliberate design tradeoffs as a "not well thought out" OS. Skiver, nothing in Maurizio Ferreira's "It's simple, modular and well thought" comment was talking about the human interface --- so I can only guess you were talking about the engine house.
