Finally a new RTOS. Great, we all have been waiting for a free RTOS for soooooo long. -- 42Bastian Do not email to bastian42@yahoo.com, it's a spam-only account :-) Use <same-name>@monlynx.de instead !

Did you bother to look at the site, or is this just a knee-jerk reaction? Yes, Nutxx is another free RTOS - but there is space for a selection of RTOS's in this world, both free and non-free. There are a great many people using free OS's of various sorts and various sizes. This one seems to be "bigger" than FreeRTOS, but "smaller" than ecos - I'm sure there are people here who will look at it with interest.

I even did download it :-)

In a way, yes :-)

I've seen, it is actually quiet "old" (already version 5).

Sure. But I just wonder why again and again new RTOS's appear, and all repeat the same philosophy (shared memory, semaphores).

Despite many others that now and then appear NuttX seems pretty complete in what it offers. -- 42Bastian Do not email to bastian42@yahoo.com, it's a spam-only account :-) Use <same-name>@monlynx.de instead !

You've got further than me - I only got as far as reading some of the website. But I have made a note of it for the future - maybe it will be useful to me.

Most RTOS's (free or otherwise) have reasonably similar designs, as far as I have seen. However, I could well imagine applications where some of the features of Nutxx, such as its shell and its file system support, would make it a very strong contender. To my mind, that makes it another /interesting/ free RTOS.
