I'm not denying that there are clients who will still choose to pay
FSMLabs. But they're a staff of less than 10, so that's not very indicative

As for Lineo, they've been in financial trouble for some time, so their
situation is rather telling.

Developers will simply not come out in the cold and say we chose OS xyz
instead of Linux because of the rtlinux issues. But talk to them in

One sympton of the current situation is the recent study by the VDC

answered "real-time limitations".
This speaks for itself.
