QNX Most people haven't heard of QNX Software, though they've likely come in contact with it. The real-time operating system is used where software failure can lead to catastrophic consequences, even death - from high-speed trains to air traffic control towers to highway toll systems. It's also used in more than 100 different types of cars on the road.

What is your building control system/application written in? Building I work in is centrally controlled, from the vents to the window shades to the elevators to the escalators to the moving sidewalks to surveillance... there is only 5 flights of stairs and I do usually use them just for my health but if someone were to say, "QNX or nothing", then I would take it to mean nothing is perfectly acceptable which would include those antiques.
