Out of the box, as it were, no. There is a bunch of customized
extensions forming a package called RT-LINUX where it is essentially
Linux running in single user mode with the kernel optimized for real
time activity.

I have not touched it, but read about it in Linux Journal or some such

OS-9 I have heard of and I understand it has been ported to a number of
hardware platforms.
