I am mainly working in Automation and I would not count that as OS. Yes, the PLC only works with them, but from the programmer's point of view, those are programming languages or environments.
The same as Windows versus Visual Studio (IMHO VS is not to be considered an OS).

Help me to understand what I'm saying, and I'll explain it better to you
Rating helpful answers is nice, but saying thanks can be even nicer.
