re: Android, FreeRTOS top EE Times' 2013 embedded survey

@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.

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

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

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.

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.

Sorry, do this survey include Apple/iOS or Nokia/Symbian?

If you add Microsoft systems you get 19%. If you add all Linux-based systems (Android, Debian, Ubuntu, Redhat, Fedora, etc). you get 43%.

For Micrum (uC/OS-II) the graph shows 9% for 2012 and 5% for 2013. This is almost 50% drop from 2012 to 2013, so uC/OS-II has decreased substantially. Am I missing something here?

OOPS, sorry, I switched colors so your comment is right. I wonder however if those figures (all, no only for uC/OS) refer to effective use or are only "intend to use sometime in the future". I remember a few years ago this issue was raised for this or another similar research.

Look again. uC/OS increased (I was fooled by the graph at first too)
