Any experience...?

Hi Rosa,

Well, you pretty much answered the first question yourself. VxWorks on PPC (603 &
860) is a supported platform, for example. And as far as I understand, building
and running Open Source Erlang for Linux on PPC also works well (but it's not
supported).

As far as Erlang/OTP for OSE-Delta is concerned (thanks for asking ;-) I'm
currently working on this here at the OTP lab. The status is that I have a
prototype (Erl/OTP R8) running on the OSE 4.3.1 Soft Kernel (Solaris). At the
moment I'm running tests on distribution and as soon as this is working properly,
I will start porting the system to an OSE Real Time Kernel (for PPC-750).

Note that I'm currently doing this mainly for evaluation purposes. It's not until
I've properly performance and characteristics tested Erlang on a real time OSE
kernel that we at OTP, together with interested customers, will be able to decide
if it's going to be a supported product, and if so, for which hardware
platform(s).

Best regards

  /Peter
