The issues related to the slow progress in fault tolerant (FT) real-time (RT) systems, are discussed. For most computing systems, the need is not only to reliably obtain the desired services, but also to obtain the service within a specified time interval. Within the same system models of distributed and networked systems, the composite provisioning of RT and dependability often results in orthogonal concerns. Theoretical and conceptual advancements are essential for any proper scientific basis, and both FT and RT offer sophisticated developments.
