At this moment I'm programming for OS9000 and I'm planning to do some programming in VxWorks. Both are RTOS's and really nice.

I write code on HP/UX at work. We also have code running on VOS, but I've not had to do any development on VOS.

word...that makes perfect sense:) i was just wondering becuase iain didn't put it on his list, yet he said he programs for Solaris and considers it an alternative.

Hmmm. I'm missing VxWorks in that list. Thought that is one of the most used OS's in embedded. If eCos and QNX are listed, then VxWorks should surely be there.

It's under the "realtime" sub-heading (along with several others)
