[Tinyos-help] TinyOS vs Contiki

For a while I have been using Cooja quite successfully with TinyOS. There
had been a couple of issues, for example on the serial stack and another one
with the timers, but with the help of the Cooja guys we could resolve these
quickly. Use the cvs head of Cooja (in the Contiki cvs) to make sure that
you have the latest version. 

Documentation is still somewhat limited, especially on TinyOS. I know that
the guys at SICS are working on this, so I hope this will change eventually.

Best wishes,
Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.
