Back in the day, some 10 years ago, when I was a young Kiwi programmer on the far end of a very long copper wire into 175 Terence Matthews Crescent, being a QNX customer was a lot of fun. QUICS was cool (and I heard they were going to move their BBS system to a Usenet based NNTP reader! WOW!), and you really got a sense of working WITH the team of talented individuals in far off, exotic Ottawa.
More often that not bug reports would be greeted with a friendly post saying – “Thanks! Try this and let me know if it fixes your problem!”, and you’d be downloading a binary straight from the desk of Real Live Kernel Engineer.
Ah, the thrill of finding hidden paths and filenames embedded in that debug binary.
What it must be like to be a PART of that select club, to be involved directly in the creation of the most successful micro-kernel RTOS out there…
Wouldn’t you want to be part of that?
Well, I’ve been there over 10 years now, and all I can say is… I can’t wait until Wednesday!!!!!
