Hi, all, I am looking for a free and open embeded RTOS, and found some more. FreeRTOS is good, but my boss let me compare another. There is an embeded rtos kernerl named CooCox OS, the site is however, the os was short of successful embeded applications, can you give me some suggestion?

Why are you asking this here, and why are you posting it multiple times. Looks like spam to me, I presume you are connected with CooCox somehow. Never heard of it myself and trying to install it I find it adds an icon to my system tray, which is definitely bad, and it does not seem to give me anything other than a control center.

There are masses of reasons to use FreeRTOS, and very few to use anything else.

Hello, davedoors!
I am so sorry to let you have an antagonistic feeling. I am a new user of SF Discussion Forums. I want to modify my posted thread when I have found someone can’t click the coocox link to the right site, but  I have no method to do that. So I post it two times.
I enter the perfessional forum to learn more about embeded rtos but nothing beyond.

Good Luck, every one!
