As far as I heard (at networkers 2002 where I spoke to one of the engeneers
workig on that topic) QNX is scheduled for mid of 2003. QNX will be underlying
OS with IOS images on top. IOS images are planned to be reduced to an amount
of 50 (instead of more than 200 currently). Patchkits are announced as well.
I _really_ hope this is coming - would be a big step in the right direction.
