OSNews, Generic OSes Once upon a time, operating systems used to matter a lot; they defined what a computer could and couldn't do... Today, there's only one operating system: Unix (okay, there are two, but we'll get to that). This is why I contend that the OS doesn't matter - or that we need to take another look at the word's content, at what we mean when we say 'Operating System'.

You do realize that QNX was originally named QUNIX, right?

And microkernel has nothing to do with it being or not Unix, after all OSF/1 (Tru64 for example) was a microkernel-based unix.
