> A while ago QNX was mature enough, yet it is still used only in a minority of industrial applications.

These days we have now QNX in version 6.4. It supports multi core CPUs and SMP ... it's just an ideal base for reliable automation applications and is one of the bests releases of QNX Neutrino Version 6.

We have applications running for machine control, material flow systems, GUI applications for locomotive displays, fieldbus gateways, robotic control a.s.o. If you visit Mission Space attraction at the Walt Disney fun park EPCOT ... Mission Space works with 12 QNX based computers and 12 Interbus fieldbus rings.

There are a lot of other applications in the field which are not visible as QNX applications. May be the radio of your car and the navigation system works with QNX ...
