OSNews, Generic OSes Taking a break from reporting on the latest netbook or phone rumours, Engadget posted an article yesterday about several elements in desktop operating systems writer Paul Miller finds outdated. While there's some interesting stuff in there, there's also a lot to discuss.

i think the desktop os is fine as-is. Lets not waste time on old technology. Give me a cell phone computer with a fold out screen, glasses that make it look 17", holograms, or built in projector to show on any wall. That way i am always with my computer. Laptops are also obsolete...the battery still only lasts a couple hours. They are heavy and obnoxious to carry around. even netbooks aren't small enough. Lets work on making a real readable screen for small devices and make them more powerful at the same time.
