It would seem that QNX is feeling the pressure from Linux; the company has just announced
that it will be making the source for its "Neutrino" realtime operating system available under a "hybrid" license. "Not only can developers view the QNX Neutrino source code, but they can
improve, modify, or extend that code for their own purposes or for the QNX
community at large. They can then choose to offer back those changes to QNX
Software Systems and the QNX development community or to keep their
modifications private and proprietary.
" What they can't do is deploy the code commercially without paying royalties.
