OS'es in outer space
I've read that NASA made an auction for 286 CPU's not a long time ago...
As it turns out, last time - when they made an upgrade - they rocket gone boom-boom, 'cause fuel-flow-controlling-app, which worked around very hardware-limited int range became lost in a land of long, modern int's...
And it pumped fuel... And it pumped fuel... And even more fuel...
And now I'm wondering:
What are they using in space?
NetBSD? Of course it runs NetBSD, but I'm not so sure about it...
There are great videos from ISS on the net, and one can see a lot of unfamiliar, swastika-like, red-green-blue-and-yellow signs on their thinkpads...
//But these are just personal desktops ;-)
What runs on the CRITICAL computers?
