Yes, it's a nice article, but the technical side leaves a much to be desidered. Like the sentence "It is not certified as a RTOS, but in use, its responsiveness is very close to Real Time operation."
A realtime OS has specific requirements, it's not just a very fast OS. In this case, given a computer fast enough, every OS can be "realtime". But it's not.
