Yes, of course it was a fork at a very early point of the develop-
ment. So what? Nobody denies that RTAI is based on the same core idea
as RT-Linux - that's why the RT-Linux patent _is_ an issue to RTAI.
On the other hand, a lot of significant features originaten in RTAI,
and have been implemented in RT-Linux later - floating point support,
to name just one.
