Software is an asset that needs to be managed to prolong its useful life. Code’s useful life is shortened when it becomes entangled with the RTOS. To protect a company’s investment the dependency on the RTOS has to be managed. Attendees’ RTOS options change over time, why should their code structure prevent them from moving to a different OS. Their product might need to run on more than one OS. See how managing the RTOS dependencies can contribute to platform independent code.
