OSNews, Generic OSes There are quite a few operating systems which have moved beyond the simple hobby operating system stage, onto a more lasting plane of existence. AROS, ReactOS, SkyOS, Syllable, Haiku; they're no longer basement products, coded by a single programer - they are now projects in which a lot of people have invested time, and possibly money too. They won't go away any time soon. The last few days have seen news on three of these systems: ReactOS, SkyOS, and Syllable.

Also, making life easier for programmers seems an easy way to ensure high-quality applications to be created for that platform, and thus serve the end user (although he/she certainly isn't interested in those details).

I can say, as a test engineer, that making life easier for programmers is *not* going to ensure that a "high-quality" application will be created...
