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.

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.

edit: Ah, IOS and not iOS. Automatic mental typo filtering isn't always a good thing.

Which makes it a good point: In the worst case, cisco will probably buy QNX just to keep it going. Not the best of fates, but probably better than outright dying.
