Total cost of ownership Linux vs. QNX - Part 2

The Linux OS provides for open access to its source code.

To examine this, we present a three-part whitepaper series that closely examines the total cost of ownership of Linux and how that compares to a commercial off-the-shelf realtime operating system like QNX. In Part 2 we examine the costs of maintaining Linux.
