I have a question hanging my head since some time ago and I’m sure you can help me.
I work with QNX for about 10 years, since QNX 4.25 times, and I observing the tendencies changes (?) of the OS segment market (I may be wrong).
Since we work with QNX in a distributed environment, the first sentence from QNX Neutrino home page alarm me:
“The QNX Neutrino RTOS provides a comprehensive, integrated set of technologies to help quickly deliver robust, reliable embedded systems.”
We always knew that QNX is a very reliable and scalable SO, but in 4.25 days I thought in “embedded systems” as an implementation “option”.
Now (perhaps it always was) it seems like embedded systems is the only (this is the central point of my question), segment market that QNX’s people are thinking and the option of great scalability became an issue inherited from the original master concept.
I wonder to myself whether QNX remains the operating system we really need in our distributed environment.
I keep thinking that the answer is yes, but perhaps your experience and point of view can contribute to me in order to understand the course of QNX OS and that apologetic phrase about embedded
Thank you very much!
It is clearly a question that comes after breathing the fresh holiday’s air
