I think not as they are used for mobile phones and in Apple's case phones and computer. The survey seems to bear out that they are not used for "embedded" applications.

This is "currently using." There was another question that probed use in the future. Interestingly it showed a turning away from Android compared with the future intentions from a year before.

uC/OS III appears to be missing ... maybe some or many OS II users upgraded?

what about Contiki, the OS for IoT? once it's widely adopted it might have the largest installation base.

@joyhaa Well the survey would include Contiki if engineers chose to mention it. This survey indicates that less than 2 percent +/- about 2 percent of engineers are using Contiki. But as you indicate, engineer usage is not the same as installation base.

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.
