QNX4 OS 1 Meg Floppy

This page has the original demo disk for QNX4 all-in-one operating system.

I have the complete Eclipse-based development environment, library and tools for QNX4 when it was open source on a CD-ROM. Definitely a target for Vault-OS using its POSIX-compliant libraries for ANSI C compilation.

It is possibly the most impressive OS for its size out there. If you look at the full featured browser that comes with it you will be stunned they fit all that onto one floppy. Even tiny versions of Linux don't have that toolset. Windows CE fits into a similar size but it is pure crap compared to this watertight, reliable distributed true multitasking system.
