Just a couple of things:
- QNX (or what ever their name is) is focused on the embedded market,
however, like what happened with Be, who said “we will focus on being a
MediaOS”, aka we’ll be the IRIX for Intel, they were and still are being
hammered by Microsoft. Unless QNX moves quickly the same thing may
happen to them.
- People are going to use it for a generic OS regardless of whether it
is a server/development/mediaOS, hence these issue must be addresseed,
ie, ya have a good product, reap the rewards by supporting the generic
- I have used BeOS and after 4 years they still donot have a “bloody
great idea” scheme set up as an encentive for established companys and
new developers to port/develope for their particular plaform. QNX is in
a position where they can offer such an incentive scheme, jump on the
opportunity now to grab future programmers and companies.
