Here is a video that the software company Qt produced featuring one of their customers, Panasonic Avionics. Panasonic is talking about their IFE system and how this Qt software enables them to focus on the design of the IFE, and not get bogged down in memory layer and/or operating system details.
IFE looks cool! This innovation in the world of aviation is really great! I wasn't able to imagine this kind of strategy for customer's satisfaction. If an Airline wants to compete with the world, they need IFE on their planes! Keep posting!
