Whitepaper: Total cost of ownership Linux vs. QNX – Part1

 

This has led some to choose Linux as a viable development platform, on the perceived basis that its cost is less than commercial alternatives

I carefully read Chris’s paper and agree with nearly everything he says, except the idea that Linux is a “free puppy” unless he is referring to a Tibetan Mastiff (http://www.nydailynews.com/life-style/world-expensive-dog-tibetan-mastiff-sells-2-million-article-1.1726647) in which case most would see the value. For automotive the issue is about sole sourcing I think, which QNX needs to address this whereas multiple automotive Linux suppliers already have. Looking forward to parts 2 and 3.
