"There is a new kid on the block. His name is "QNX Realtime
Platform" (or simply RtP). In order to download your very own copy
of the newly available Public Release, all you need to do is pay a
quick visit to the appropriate website maintained by QSSL.
Alternatively, you can buy an installation CD with all the
necessary files for just $29.95...."
"I am fed up with searching for an "alternative" operating
system that would actually stick around long enough to even start
challenging Windows on the x86 platform. I used to run IBM's
OS/2 as my primary platform, but it is now as dead as dead can be.
This is too bad indeed since Warp 4 was actually getting
dangerously close to what I would call a good solid 1.0
"Then, for a number of reasons, I thought that BeOS had a real
chance to make it big. In hindsight, I could not have been more
wrong. It might as well still be the most buzzword-compliant
operating system on the market, but just like I was telling you in
my last article, there are simply too many obstacles that it might
never be able to overcome."
