QNX Since QNX - understandably - lost any and all interest in general-purpose computing, I kind of lost track where it was going (I used to have such fun with it - yup, 2004, before I even joined OSNews). Apparently, they just released version 6.5 SP1. It contains optimised memory performance, better networking and USB stacks, improved file system performance, and more. I'm sure these are all things we'll see trickle down to BlackBerry OS 10.

That famous Demo disk they made available in the late 90s ('97, I think) changed the way I looked at OSes for a long time. I too ran QNX on a 40mhz 386 and always hoped they hit the consumer market more strongly. QNX is really the main reason I still follow Blackberry.

I think QNX is too widely used in the industry to disappear, even if Blackberry goes down, some other company will pick it up.

http://qnx.projektas.lt/qnxdemo/qnx_demo_disk.htm nowadays, typically most likely faster than digging out any floppy ;)

PS. Curious, IOS is based on QNX.
