When used in titles or at the start of a sentence, I suspect
it should be `Real-time' and not `Real-Time' on the grounds
that capitalization nevers occurs within a hyphenated word
except for a proper noun.

Thus one would have RtSS and not RTSS.

(Likewise, `Fault-tolerance' and not `Fault-Tolerance' ...
which would reduce FTCS to FtCS).

1. what's the exact difference between Hard Real-Time and Soft Real-Time

Hi all
    I just wondering what is the exact difference hard real-time system and
soft real-time system?  Are they(soft or hard) refering to the operating
system? or the application combined with the RTOS?
If so how to classify the popular RTOS? eg. win CE, embedde linux, uCLinux,
eCOS, VxWorks etc. ?
