NASA's Real-Time Operating System Abstraction Layer

Now that NI has opened up a development environment for C++ and its Linux kernel, I was wondering if anyone had had any usage experience with NASA's Real-Time Operating System Abstraction Layer project.  Would you care to share those experiences?

It hasn't. The most vital parts - drivers - are still kept secret. Thus useless for any serious Linux development.

*ROFL* just look at that code ... anyone still wondering why they dont make it to the moon these days (official statement) ?

They're coding as they still were on 8086 on DOS.

 

This funny "abstraction" not just throws away vital OS functionality, like multiprocessing - it offers nothing that's not already in POSIX and standard C.
