RTOS popularity

Started by Philipp Klaus Krause December 26, 2015
There are a lot of RTOSes around. I wonder which are the most used ones.
In particular, I'm interested in the free ones supporting the STM8,
which currently are:

* OSA
* atomthreads
* ChibiOS
* ScmRTOS

But I'd also like to know about the general 8/16-bit situation.

Seems, there is also * BuguRTOS While I can't find the STM8 support in current ChibiOS anymore. Philipp

I see that people asked for a STM8 port a few times, and over ayear ago someone posted a port to the forum: http://interactive.freertos.org/entries/40887409-FreeRTOS-port-for-STM8-micro-controller-and-IAR-compiler But there has been no activity otherwise. While FreeRTOS is certainly popular in general, it seems not so much for STM8. Philipp

I advise against STMicroelectronics, as I documented via
e.g. "Referees Often Miss Obvious Errors in Computer and Electronic
Publications", "Accountability in Research: Policies and Quality
Assurance", Volume 20, Issue 3.

Is there some BS here? I searched for this document and found it has nothing to do with STM. What's your game? Are you just trying to increase sales of your paper? -- Rick

No. There is BS in publications which STMicroelectronics contributed
to which I referred to in "Referees Often Miss Obvious Errors in
Computer and Electronic Publications".

Whistleblowing, but it is not a game.

It is not my paper - it is a paper by me owned by a publisher. More
visibility might not hurt. A lot of persons are subscribers and would
not need to buy a copy of this paper.
