Many of you have noticed that QNX 6.21 Non Commercial Release is available for download at http://download.qnx.com/download/qnxnc621.iso since March 13. People are wondering why there is no officially announcement from QSS. Some think technical team has done their job and it is waiting for the busy marketing folks for the blessing. Others believe some packaging bugs have delayed the release of NC (some libs were missing), users who use that iso are going to be using it at their own risk, so people might want to wait a bit before trying it. If you still want to try it out, make sure your downloaded ISO matches the following checksum:

QNX Software Systems today announced that its founders, CEO Dan Dodge and COO Gordon Bell, are featured as "Heroes of Manufacturing" in the March 17, 2003, issue of Fortune magazine. The annual feature recognizes North Americans who are trailblazers in the manufacturing industry. Dodge and Bell received this distinguished title for building the QNX Neutrino(R) Realtime Operating System (RTOS), which, according to the article, "simply doesn't crash."
The "Heroes of Manufacturing" feature appears in Fortune's Industrial Management & Technology (IM&T) section, which is distributed to over 200,000 paid subscribers. The article is also featured on the Fortune web site at: http://www.fortune.com/fortune/imt/0,15704,427288-2,00.html.

Since February has passed, it is now obvious that the much anticipated Non-Commercial version of QNX 6.2.1, a.k.a QNX 6.2.1 NC, has delayed. Some insiders even go extremes and predict that NC will be no more. We've just got the good news: Chris McKillop posted that QSS would start the 6.2.1NC beta shortly. You can sign up at http://www.qnx.com/myqnx and get informed when the beta is ready. It is said that the beta will offer the ability to upgrade from your current 6.2.0 install, but you won't be able to revert back to 6.2.0 without a re-install. When 6.2.1 NC is actually released, beta testers will have to do a re-install. It is still unclear why QSS would even need to do a beta for a free version of an OS that's already out.
