QNX Operating System: Project overview#

This project is the place to develop the crown jewels of QNX: the QNX® Neutrino® Realtime Operating System (QNX6) and key libraries. The operating system is composed of the kernel and the process manager. Because it's a microkernel OS, device drivers, network stacks, filesystems and the like are maintained in separate projects. These projects will be created as the source is released.

What is Neutrino?#

QNX Neutrino is a realtime microkernel operating system. It's scalable, embeddable, networked, SMP-capable, memory protected, and cool. Plus it has a POSIX interface so no one has an excuse to not use it. The OS supports several processor families, including x86, ARM, XScale, PPC, MIPS, and SH-4.

Microkernel Webinar Slides posted
I've created a page with the slides and questions from the October 17th Webinar - "Get the inside track on 27 years of microkernel innovation"

I posted the questions asked during the webinar, and will attempt to fill in the answers.
