12:18:22	 From  Michael Kirkhart : There is still a place for commercial RTOSes or paid support for open source RTOSes, as there are users who will still require dedicated support. 12:19:25	 From  Michael Kirkhart : Redhat is an example of a company that is viable business entity using open source software.  12:23:24	 From  Erwin : Also when seeing more and more complex features used by RTOSes there is much more need for support from a customer perspective. You cannot easily learn everything that fast as you need to ship your product. 12:26:31	 From  Michael Kirkhart : Microsoft tried that years ago with Windows CE. 12:29:55	 From  Michael Kirkhart : Agree with the comment about security as a spectrum - one has to understand what their application threat model is. 12:31:00	 From  Michael Kirkhart : When it comes to security, has there been any discussion in the RTOS/embedded community about secure coding practices? 12:31:13	 From  Eduardo Pino : Do you think security concerns will drive the development of formally verified kernels and components such as the se4L OS? 12:31:52	 From  Michael Kirkhart : What does "formally verified" mean? 12:32:22	 From  Eduardo Pino : Formal verification of software refers to the application of mathematical proof techniques to establish properties about programs. 12:36:08	 From  Eduardo Pino : oops i misspelled seL4 12:40:06	 From  Himanshu Savargaonkar : Will python based languages like MicroPython and CircuitPython become complete RTOSs? Or will they remain a hobby programming language? 12:50:39	 From  Kate Stewart : https://bestpractices.coreinfrastructure.org/en 12:51:39	 From  Max Hughson : https://isocpp.github.io/CppCoreGuidelines/CppCoreGuidelines 12:52:10	 From  Kate Stewart : Contributions to https://github.com/coreinfrastructure/best-practices-badge welcome 12:55:49	 From  Cole Wyant : @Kate Stewart Don't want to derail the panel, but what would be the best/cost reasonable dev kit to start evaluating Zephyr? 12:55:49	 From  Erwin : You can get Python to use a JIT Compiler and then it's simmilar to Java which is running on your credit card! 12:59:33	 From  Kate Stewart : https://docs.zephyrproject.org/latest/develop/getting_started/index.html 13:02:43	 From  Gillian Minnehan : Wonderful panel. Thank you Jean, Kate, Jacob, and Bill! 13:02:50	 From  Alex : good 13:02:50	 From  Steve Wheeler : Good discussion. Thank you all. 13:02:56	 From  Eduardo Pino : great talk 13:02:57	 From  Raul Pando : Thank you 13:02:59	 From  Alex : nive weekend 13:02:59	 From  Jay Cosper : good discussion
