I'm writing an article about Migrating from QNX.
I wrote QNX or Linux http://software.intel.com/en-us/arti...-qnx-or-linux/
Is it strictly cost that has you changing platforms? I found or was quoted these prices.
QNX – depends on components purchased – several hundred to over $10,000 per seat - USD$9695 per seat (one time) and $1842 per seat per year support.
Wind River Linux ($3,000 to $15,000 per seat per year in 2006)
MontaVista Linux (over $8,000 per developer per year)
LynuxWorks Inc. ($11, 500/dev/yr - 2005)
iMedia Linux (USD$33/dev seat current)
TimeSys Linux (USD$5495/dev seat -2012)
Have you seen Yocto? http://www.yoctoproject.org/
What I like about Yocto is that it is free, based and aligned with OpenEmbedded and heavily supported by Intel.
I have a few questions that I need to ask for the article:
Reason for dropping QNX?
OS and platforms being considered?
problem so far porting from QNX?
Biggest problem so far?
