In my opinion lowering the defaults is definitely a good idea. In an
embedded environment there is no specific need for an RTOS to supply
high and memory consuming theoretical default limits. As the
application is tailored to the system the RTOS should also be tailored
to the application.
The only critical thing is, IMHO, that those minimum defaults should be
well documented. Guides like "Getting Started" and/or the "C User
Guide" should take great care to explain the necessety of having to
replace the defaults with your own values for all but the most trivial
Oh, BTW, next BETA ??? So I guess it will still take some time before
we arrive at a new full official release ?
