QNX When Research In Motion unveiled its BlackBerry Playbook tablet on Monday, including the new QNX-based operating system it runs, I already speculated that it would probably make its way onto RIM's smartphones as well. RIM has now confirmed this suspicion.

Flash is also incredibly likely. Adobe and QNX are good friends...

Completely untrue that Adobe and QNX are friends. I have my own experience to vouch for this. See if you can get Adobe to port AIR to QNX, for instance.

Make no mistake - QNX is riding the coattails of other, more popular, operating systems to get Flash functionality.

Thom, you can go ahead and install QNX on desktop systems. It hardly requires any knowledge whatsoever - and is easy to set up as it supports x86. Please, just stop being such a blind fanboy. If you're going to editorize something through OSNews, please - get some experience as opposed to relying on theory.

Theory is that Betamax is better than VHS too.

Beta(max) is still used in movie production, where VHS never got popular. I think that technically Betamax was superior, but that VHS won on the non-technical aspects (like the minidisc was superior to early flash memory in every single technical aspect but died due to OpenMG stupidity)
