unless QNX has managed to get a large ammount of investment they will
have at most 5-10 real core OS developers. Linux has hundreds and most
of them are highly modivated.

Granted it has been a few years since I have used QNX but my feeling at
the time was that it was a marginaly useable real-time OS with few tools
and no external applications. I still believe that QNX has a serious
realtime focus. Most applications for clusters are not realtime

But I could be wrong.
