Next thing you'll know I'll have to tell people inside teasers what Windows is ;) .

I had no idea what AIXGL was until it started appearing one day on OSNews- without explanation as to what it was- a couple weeks ago. It appeared enough times that I ended up googling it.

That's fine and dandy, but the indisputible fact remains that having quick little explanations every once in a while about some of the more niche subjects will make OSNews a little more pleasant to read.

I think it's reasonable to expect that people will know what X, Linux, *BSD, GNOME, KDE, Windows, Mac, BeOS, and all of the high-visibility tech companies are all about. Syllable, compiz, Quanta, TriangleOS, Reiser4 and Turion (among the rest of the new naming conventions for processors) aren't things I'd expect my geekiest of friends to know off hand. Some might, but I just wouldn't jump in to a conversation like that.

Let's be realistic here.
