I am student at University of Southern California,Los Angeles.
I have a question about embedded RTOS like QNX. They say that QNX is embedded OS, meaning it is for specific purpose for specific devices. I dowloaded the non-commercial edition and I an running it on my PC.
I am able to surf the web, edit files using abiword. So how is this different from general purpose operating systems. Where is the RealTime part of it. They also claim that QNX runs on devices installed in cars.
How is that possible. How can I surf web through a device ??
Please clear my concepts of real time embedded systems. I am very very new to all this.
