    ok look this reason Why is a window OS not suited as real time OS

    Monolithic kernel is too feature reach.
    Monolithic kernel is not modular, fault-tolerant, configurable,
    modifiable, … .
    Takes too much space.
    Not power optimized.
    Not designed for mission-critical applications.
    Timing uncertainty too large.

    All what you write here, without context, is pretty much Nonsense, kind of a "Labellitis" disorder.

    How about considering the specification before everything?

    We don't need engineer who makes sure Definitions are well met according to some obscure rulebook, but in the end, their work is sloppy, not considering real life, and the plane will crash.

    Before you put a giant spreadsheet with components for a skyscraper, start small.

    -Get a cutter blade knife.
    -Get a big roll sticky tape.
    -Get cardboard boxes from a supermarket.
    -Cut the boxes into pieces (freehand), and assemble some sense-making 3-floor cardboard houses.
    -Make about 50 of them.
    -Then move on, read a book.

    You seem to lack practical hands-on experience with just anything, and you ponder about vague possibilities covered by textbook definitions.

    Make a CPU with Minecraft. Play some WoW. Try shopping/cooking, and stuff like that.

    I mean no one needs a buildings which meets all definitions from a rulebook, but at the end of the day, will be uncomfortable, and will be vandalizing the cityscape with architectural brutality.

    Engineering, computer programming, FPGA and RTOS and all the like to some degree pretty much also is architecture.

    Understand context and how what you write makes sense in a context outside your own world. Its possible no one will bother your concerns but the market will decide.
