QNX As of April 2010, a silent change was made on Foundry27, users with a myQNX account could no longer checkout/update their copies of the QNX SVN repositories and a vague Wiki page was created "detailing" some licencing clarifications.

"QNX is not "proven" for whatever use case RIM might have for it"

Then why RIM has bought QNX in the first place ?

According to co-CEO Mike Lazaridis, RIM is buying QNX at least in part to "further integrate and enhance the user experience between smartphones and in-vehicle audio and infotainment systems," adding that the company will also "bring other value to RIM in terms of supporting certain unannounced product plans for intelligent peripherals."

So, RIM had an actual reason to buy QNX - it seems some nice embedded products with QNX will come out, and RIM gets the inside position to integrate with those.

I don't see QNX going on their phones though.
