“Congratulations Microsoft. Responding to your community? Embracing an open source model in a non-trivial way? These are big, admirable steps I thought I would never personally witness.”

“There are hundreds of open-source OS’s – some are even deterministic enough to be ‘hard realtime’. RealTime is basically ‘fast enough to keep up’ – but hard realtime means ‘measurably deterministic’ – not just fast enough to keep up, but measurably and predictably able to keep up with a given load. WinCE 6 makes the claim that it’s hard realtime But… is it really a hard-realtime system? Just claiming you’re ‘RealTime’ isn’t enough.”
