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."

I found a Slashdot discussion of a CNN interview with the TRON creator, that's no longer online, interesting, especially the following post:
http://slashdot.org/comments.pl?sid=71308&cid=6453737

Somewhere someone also mentions it's creator uses it on his home PC to do all his work.

Some official links:

But what I'm wondering is what it's really like; how to envision it being used on Japanese school PCs. Would it be a multi-tasking CLI with an API? Or does it feature graphical components?
