I started this thread with the QNX 4 demo disks, now it's time to go back to QNX, specifically QNX 6 RTP, the freely distributed version of QNX 6.
Some screenshots to start with, showcasing the 6.0 Pre release installation:

The first boot of the 6.0 non pre-version, some other things change, like the boot options screen that is simpler to use with sub categories.

Hardware compatibility list is available at https://web.archive.org/web/20001109180 ... index.html
The minimum specs mentioned on the QNX website are a Pentium 200 and 32MB of RAM.
The OS works in 86box with a 486 PCI motherboard and an Intel DX4 or Pentium Overdrive, or an AMD 5x86 cpu.
It can be installed in its own partition or as a loopback file under Win9x.

The standalone installer for Win9x, about 29MB each unzipped:
qnxrtp60-installer-Sept2000.zip: https://mega.nz/#!n9pV3QjL!oIpPpDCj1bvq ... Cx7xPvt-EQ
qnxrtp60-installer-Jan2001.zip: https://mega.nz/#!n4x1QIhb!-h3atr2OM7w0 ... qZIyrsCGbc
qnxrtp610-installer-June2001.zip: https://mega.nz/#!H44V0Sya!JE9n2ueJmo3G ... P4_iaLY0RU

The original download for installing under QNX 4:

The various .iso files, containing local repository of software packages:

QNXRTP610-Aug2001.rar: https://mega.nz/#!np5VDKYL!yNmjNiKoe2wa ... EIUYnZ7Gv4

After QNXRTP 6.1.0, QNX named the following versions QNX 6.2.x Momentics, here are the two Non-Commercial releases:
QNXNC620-May2002.rar: https://mega.nz/#!mww1EQTa!k5JkC7z8qxAt ... C4P69YYShc
QNXC621-Feb2003.rar: https://mega.nz/#!Ssh3XAyK!GGqihAeEdEkE ... FH3AvtDzR0

The 6.2.0 is the last one that comes with a Win9x installer.
Some of the later versions can be used as LiveCD.
Have fun!

Nice shots. I was always fasinated how they got the QNX gui running on such a small foot print.

There's a glitch in the matrix.

^^ that's pretty cool, thanks for uploading!

Does the Win9x version make any changes to the host OS? (I.e. is it "safe" to install on an existing system and uninstall cleanly?) I'm guessing it just sets itself up as a containerized virtual machine?

It just edits the config.sys to add the boot menu for QNX, and return it to its previous state during the uninstall.
