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.

David Patterson, known for his pioneering research that led to RAID, clusters and more, is part of a team at UC Berkeley that recently made its RISC-V processor architecture an open source hardware offering. We talk with Patterson and one of his colleagues behind the effort about the opportunities they see, what new kinds of designs they hope to enable and what it means for today’s commercial processor giants such as Intel, ARM and Imagination Technologies.
