Google kept QnX alive and on record ? Floppy operating system download

QNX had an operating system for cloud computing but text only. Its all in a 1.44 mB floppy. Google to download?

It uses an external dialup modem to connect to your ISP. and a text browser for webpages. Not too shabby in mobile world. It could do online banking with Bank of America if it uses encryption SSL 3.0.

Then QNX developed a version using VMware, of 600 mB. And it became very slow.

Now they put the real time platform under Win98 system, 24 mB of QNX RTP can do a whole real time operating system. win98 itself is not bloated. Win95 was small in foot print and uses only8 mB of drams. Win98 uses 24 mB of drams.

The only thing was QNX RTP did not use WiFi but stuck with external dialup modem.

The realtime platform is like Unix, packet switching using posix. It may be the future of windows9? Windows7 uses ,net packets for all the video protocols. Windows9 only has to do mpeg4/h.264 data compression in hdmi system, thus posix packets are sufficient.

Re: Google kept QnX alive and on record ? Floppy operating system download

An operating system in a floppy is the famous QNX demo disk. It has over 1710 files each less than 100 bytes. it boots the dialup external modem; connects you to your ISP. Then it starts a text browser to download  your http webpage  request.

This precurser of the embedded smartphone works simply. on any computer that has external dialup modem(56k)

Now it has a QNX RTP(24 mB) that can be use with Win98 to run a realtime operating system of dialup modem and browser.

Both are available for download free. If you are using Tiny core or Slitaz, why bother with QNX?

If Tiny core and SliTaz boot and connect to the internet thru wifi hotspot, then launch the browser; then you don't need QNX at all. But, Tiny core and SliTaz boots into a desktop, then tries to connect wifi to a hotspot, then you can launch the browser. QNX has the automation to launch into browser and surf right away.

But QNX itself was not as efficient as Prex0.4 operating system(4kB). Prex uses cellphone(hardware dialing) to speed dial into central office of telephone company, then downloads the mobile text webpage by an http address. If QNX used cellphone then demo floppy disk would be even more efficient.

So, today's tablets have hardware wifi connection or 3/4G connection to speed up connection to the internet, That is the key to obsoleting IBMPC architecture. Today its hard to sell IBMPC. People know smartphone is more efficient to get on the internet. We are working on internet traffic control for billions of people using internet for business or plasure.

If USB 3/4G modem and USB wifi card have hardware dialing or automatic connection to internet(instant on), the operating system will be much different.

The market for computers are changing, Amazon is selling Kindle not stocking some other netbook brands. This makes computer manufacturing firms without stores like Apple, a distinct disadvantage of lacking shelf space to put their products.

How big names will survive this shift in marketing results will need serious understanding quickly. Drugstore and supermarket shelf space is the only available market, but price points are $200 limits. Department stores will have to have incentives(like gift store tradition of selling on consignment) to stock laptops?

In the mean time, we are proposing strip down hdd on older laptops, and install USB or pcmcia flash memory. The advantage is to do software peripherals like wirtual wifi network for connection to internet. Older laptops can be a new laptop with all firmware improvement using sound chip for analog functions in new peripherals. Moving yourselves to the new type of computers everybody is using. Away from IBMPC architecture.
