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.

The announcement of the QNX-based operating system bring attention to something more interesting which is the triumph of Unix.


...over what? Windows? Yeah, call me when desktops, laptops, servers, etc (you know, the computing devices that people use to do actual work) start getting replaced those things. Right now, they're just consumer toys.

The only "triumph" here is the triumph of proprietary UNIX over open sores Eunuchs. I'm sure that really annoys the hell out of Stallman and co!
