Talk:Nucleus RTOS

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Jump to: navigation, search


The article is somewhat factually incorrect. While Nucleus OS is what it is said to be, it's origin is incorrect. Nucleus was designed and developed by William Lamie in the late 80s while he worked at, I believe, Litton, which is somehow related to Ingals Ship Building in Pascagoula Mississippi. In 1990 he, Neil Henderson, and possibly one other gentleman formed Accelerated Technology Inc., and marketed Nucleus to the Embedded Systems Industry. At that time it was called Nucleus RTX. Later, in the early to mid 90s, William developed Nucleus PLUS. Mentor acquired Accelerated Technology some time around 2000 or 2001. William Lamie is also the author of ThreadX and the President and CEO of Express Logic, Inc. It would be good to get his input for the accuracy required here. It also appears to be an advert to me as well. I believe its ok to say as much as is known about Nucleus, just not in the format in which it is presented. --Viper4400x2 (talk) 08:27, 31 January 2011 (UTC)

This should be discussed for deletion or not. Definitely not a speedy.--Jondel 13:13, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

I'm open to discussion, but it appears to be an advert. Вasil | talk 19:08, 16 June 2007 (UTC)

The os is a major os. The article (I started) was'nt meant to spam/advertise but to be informative(as with other wiki articles). Perhaps we could just remove parts which advertise. For people who need to know what alternatives there are available for operating systems in small embedded devices, it would be good for them to study this. Uh, May I ask if you are into electronics ? --Jondel 05:08, 17 June 2007 (UTC)

Nothing seems to be at all like an advertisement to me... It doesn't say anything about how great it is, only facts about what it does. Seems like an encyclopedic article if I've ever seen one. I don't think it should be deleted. -Mike Payne 05:57, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I'm an embedded SW engineer. I don't have a problem with the subject, just the advert section: Edge developer suite. My apologies if the the tag I used was inappropriate. Вasil | talk 17:37, 17 June 2007 (UTC)
I think it would be ok to tone down or delete altogether the Edge develoepr suite. It is not central to the article anyway.--Jondel 10:27, 19 June 2007 (UTC)

just a tuppence here, but I think it's okay. IMO it's to short to sound like an ad, i have seen others on wiki that were DEFO an ad, prolly written by an employee of that company, this seems fine to me but YMMV :s Dava4444 (talk) 01:21, 8 July 2010 (UTC)

Other real-time operating systems[edit]

UCLinux is not a real-time operating system. --Xerces8 (talk) 10:25, 11 January 2008 (UTC)

Fair use rationale for Image:Mentor logo.png[edit]

Nuvola apps important.svg

Image:Mentor logo.png is being used on this article. I notice the image page specifies that the image is being used under fair use but there is no explanation or rationale as to why its use in this Wikipedia article constitutes fair use. In addition to the boilerplate fair use template, you must also write out on the image description page a specific explanation or rationale for why using this image in each article is consistent with fair use.

Please go to the image description page and edit it to include a fair use rationale. Using one of the templates at Wikipedia:Fair use rationale guideline is an easy way to ensure that your image is in compliance with Wikipedia policy, but remember that you must complete the template. Do not simply insert a blank template on an image page.
