jeesss

Just downloaded the free version and, from what I have seen, it ‘rocks’.

Its like the best of beos and the best of a unix system
Its like a cleaned up super linux

I may be wrong, I havent used it long.
But I think its getting its own partition…:slight_smile:

A few questions…
Why is the iso so much bigger than the windows install?
How would I go about adding QNX to the NT bootloader menu (I am running
windows 2000, 98 and beos at the mo)
Also, are there any sites where I can find detailed info
like the technical details…

thanks
sergio

Ive also been to the qnx website and the OS seems directed toward use on
embedded systems.
Is it really meant to be used as an alternative to windows and linux. Or is
the desktop support more of an after thought?

thanks
sergio

The windows install is only the core components, packages
you’d otherwise have to download later were added to the iso image.

(I suppose this is because you can use the CD to install QNX RTP on
computers without internet connection, and it would get a bit difficult
to download the extra packages on those comps :slight_smile:

Because the windows install is just the core and you download the
rest (development system, X server ,etc). The ISO contains everything
aside Quake

windows 2000, 98 and beos at the mo)

If you install from within 98 you should get a menu.

Also, are there any sites where I can find detailed info
like the technical details…

The CD includes additional packages that can be installed using the package
manager. Users who download the windows install have no choice but to
connect to the remote qnx repository.

I tried to get it working but wasn’t having much luck and gave up in
favour of lilo. Of course you can always install it on the 98 partition.

try www.qnx.com
