Which OS would you think is more fitting for the future of self-driving vehicles go back to reddit please.
FreeRTOS and with all sources available.
At least I wouldn't step into a killing machine if I could not even know how it works when not by any means limited by the person driving.
Realistically though we're probably going to see some other RTOS that's completely locked down. It's a very effective way to control people if you're controlling some of the most important material objects in their lives. Say, for example that Google controls your car and your phone, or maybe even your computer if you have a Chromebook, which might very well increase in popularity in the consumer market.
For your average /g/ user with at least some insight or pseudo-knowledge (like putting together computers and fixing your mom's google ultron and adobe reader), it might be a lot easier to just get a different car, phone and computer. But for the average consumer who doesn't know much nor want to know much about the technology they're using, changing these might be a more complicated process.
The company behind these things can increase your dependence by using proprietary standards for chargers, integrate it more with their own products, etc. Resulting in a very firm hold on their customers. It's a great business opportunity, really.
That said I don't like it one bit. One entity with too much control is very dangerous.
Minix 3, self healing could save lives.
Windows possibly, may drive you to a MS store though and force you to go in.
BSD possibly good.
Linux is so trash it needs an OOM killer so that will probably drive you in to oncoming traffic when it decides to kill steering control after a bash exploit bomb.
Debian Stable. A car won't need anything top of the line or fancy, just for the software to fucking work when it needs to fucking work.
