QNX If there is one operating system that has a special place in my heart, it's QNX. This microkernel operating system served as my main desktop operating system for months and months back in the day, during the short-lived QNX Desktop scene - which died out due to a lack of interest from QNX' parent company, QNX Software Systems. The money is in the embedded and high reliability markets, and that's where QSS - understandably - focused its efforts. QNX was sort-of open sourced in September 2007, and today the company has announced the release of QNX 6.4, the first major release since 6.3 in 2004.

Either Open Source or Not

Thom...they can't have "kind of" open sourced it - they either have or they haven't. The fact is that the license is not open source, therefore not open source.

It is "open source". You can see the source and check it out of their svn.

But it's neither free as in beer or speech.
