Thank you a good read! Very timely as I am looking at future controller options along with the tradeoff between: RTOS/linux/micro-state machine..

The article does not address some of the key criteria's that are needed to select an RTOS, namely: 1. Context Switching Time 2. Interrupt Latency Time 3. Memory management 4. Scalability 5. Scheduling options 6. Priority Inversion handling 7. INVERSION_SAFE IPC mechanisms Even though some these will differ based on the Processor Architecture, and Operating Frequency, still the RTOS vendor must publish measurable parameters on a reference hardware.
