For tablet and smartphone application, Android might have advantage over others since the success of these products are heavily relying on the marketplace. Ubuntu, no doubt, will get some attention. In typical embedded application, memory footprint becomes very critical. The lesser the memory; the better popularity. For this reason, FreeRTOS gets a lot of attention. Commercial OS will likely be around for a while. Defense industry uses might be one of the many primary reason. I am very interested in learning the breakdown of various OS to industries/ applicatons.

It's amazing that the share of MQX(Freescale) increased from 0% to 5% in JUST ONE YEAR. In comparision the uC/OS II decreased quite a lot.

The success of Android does not surprise me. The programming is very simple. The development tools are really comfortable to use. I think Android will also make its way in user interfaces in the industrial context.

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

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.

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?

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

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