I got the impression? that MSP430 have goo chances to be an MPU in
future hardware design.
I've recently found what open-source OS - COntiki (maybe more than one)
available for this platform.
From paper  I understand that Contiki have event based kernel,
sounds good for MPU job and possibility to update/download new programs
during runtime (there is also possibility to replace the kernel to).
The question: Is it possible or desirable to have a such "full" OS on MPU?
P.S . I'm a nonprogrammer so _can_ speak absolutely nonsense.
