The implementation of the QNX Neutrino RTOS

Historically, the "application pressure" on QNX Software Systems' operating systems has been from both ends of the computing spectrum—from memory-limited embedded systems all the way up to high-end SMP (symmetrical multiprocessing) machines with gigabytes of physical memory.

Accordingly, the design goals for QNX Neutrino accommodate both seemingly exclusive sets of functionality. Pursuing these goals is intended to extend the reach of systems well beyond what other OS implementations could address.
