Is there any chance of getting office QNX support for such a web site?
I mean, digging around the internet to find a few precious gems such as
Nedit that will run under QNX,
but only in Xwindows emulation, is a drag. If QNX actually wants people to
use there OS, they need to promote, and co-ordinate with people willing to
port projects to QNX. For instance, if the QNX web site would tell you that
FREE software like Nedit was already avalible, and either host a download it
themself OR at least have a link it would make it a lot more attractive. If
it’s easier to use Linux due to the fact you can get distributions that have
better tools than vi, jed, and ped, people are going to look at QNX and say
it’s pretty, but there’s no software. My manager was excited about it at
first but now, he’s tire of the BS he want’s an IDE, not just PHAB. He
want’s apps like abiword to be at least as polished as the QNX supported
apps. He want’s CDR support. I’m having a hard time selling him on the
platform as a development environment because QNX doesn’t try and make the
simple things easy. Finding applications, and using them shouldn’t be the
hard part! Writing real-time software is where we should be expending our
effort, not searching the web for a fundamental tool like Nedit, a simple
GUI based code editor with syntax hilighting.

Many of you were familiar with the qnxStart.com web portal that
dissappeared a couple of months before the new year. The good news is
that over the last few months of 2001, we had a group of volunteers
working on a new site to replace it. The new site is qnxZone, and was
officially launched for the public mere hours before the new year.
The news zone of the site is fully operational, and the other zones are
being actively worked on and should be online in the next few weeks.
So, please stop by and check out the new premier QNX community web portal.
