New website is currently being constructed. Search
the archive - especially the messages from Paolo in
the past few days.

WOW! Sounds cool, but as you say if it does something
meaningful is another question.
I've played with OM and I think it's quite cool, but
until the kernel 2.6 version is finished it'll take
ages I guess (well, Moshe Bar has announced that there
will be more activity again, but I have not seen any
messages on the OM maillist about that recently).
The latest release of OM is for 2.4.26, so you need to
use RTAI3.1r2, which still supports that kernel.
BTW, what are you actually trying to do ?
I doubt it's easy to migrate hard real time stuff anyway.
