OSNews, Generic OSes I just stumbled upon an interesting forum thread over at AmigaWorld.net. The thread details whether or not AmigaOS and MorphOS should be called "hobby operating systems", and what kind of criteria should be applied. This sounded like an interesting point of discussion for OSNews.

Once upon a time there was a hobby OS called Linux. You had to download source code from ftp sites and cross compile it to even build the boot floppy!

The big players were a handful of UNIX vendors, Microsoft and Apple. Everything else was a rounding error.
