"I have been a customer of QNX Software Systems for 24 years. We used QNX technology to build one of the world’s largest financial transaction processing networks in the late 80s and leveraged the QNX Neutrino RTOS to build the world's largest router in the 90s — and worked with QNX again to build the world’s most advanced network security infrastructure product. In 2003, I had the honor to work with QNX on telematics for automobiles. In short, QNX has stood up to all the other alternatives in every evaluation over the 24 years. In addition, the QNX team's competency and professionalism is next to none. I have depended on them to provide sound technology recommendations and support over and over again. Thank you, QNX, for being such a great partner!"

“My first experience with the QNX OS was in the 80s, back when it was called QUNIX and before it became the much hipper and cooler QNX. Long before anyone else, QNX Software Systems had a passion for building smart, robust, and distributed applications. Thirty years later, QNX technology is in everything from telephones to trains, spaceships and automobiles. The company has ridden the wave of computerization that we could all see was going to happen, and that early focus on smart, robust, and distributed software has paid off as they’ve become the ‘goto guys’ for embedded systems that can’t fail.”
