After evaluating scalable RTOSs, I have been happily using QNX Neutrino. A very sane architecture.

Wind River took over ISI while we were designing in pSOS into all our products in 1991. We believed them when they said they were going to support us. They didnt. We designed them out and havent used vxworks since then.

Given Intel's miserable 20-year track record in acquisitions, I think it's safe to assume that VxWorks on other architectures will not be supported long-term. And you're right, that's very sad.

Does this mean that Wind River support for non-Intel processors will now be butchered-out? Is this how competition works? How sad.
