OSNews, Generic OSes "What is the world's most widely used operating system?" The answer is in an interesting Linux Insider piece about ITRON, 'a Japanese real-time kernel for small-scale embedded systems' that runs on a lot of "mobile phones, digital cameras, CD players and other electronic devices."

TRON with...

T-engine seemed very promising. Tangerince cubes with MIPS64 or ARM were about to rock the world. But they are very expensive prototypes. How can we run TRON when it does not on standard PCs. Actually Tangerines are aimed at mass production, and could have been very cheap. They could have been produced for masses. But it did not happen. By the way the A6 (riscos) uses one of these Tangerines reference designs. I think they must reconsider their position and make Tangerines for the masses.

The A6 runs Windows XP on an AMD processor, and provides RISC OS compatibility through emulation. I can see no evidence that it's a Tangerine reference design.
