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.

Looks like you never used QNX. It's ok, but don't say that it's a 'proprietary crap'. It may be proprietary, but is definitely *not* a crap. OS itself is very old, stable, fast and standarized. It makes lot better RTOS than Linux RTOS appliances.

I tend to refer to proprietary infrastructure (when good open alternatives exist) as "crap" regardless of the quality - just a habit of mine ;) .

Clear. Just for a record: it *was* open for a while, too bad it isn't now. I have the same attitude when it comes to closed-source things, but this is one of the few examples of good, closed source projects, so you know ;)
