OSNews, Generic OSes There's one complaint we here at OSNews get thrown in our faces quite often: what's up with the lack of, you know, operating system news on OSNews? Why so much mobile phone news? Why so much talk of H264, HTML5, and Flash? Where's the juicy news on tomorrow's operating systems? Since it's weekend, I might as well explain why things are the way they are. Hint: it has nothing to do with a lack of willingness.

Seriously though. I don't think there's anything wrong with reporting on the things we see here. Sometimes the quantity of articles that support Thom's views on things compared with alternative views gets a little like sand under your fingernails, but reporting on WebOS, Android, iPhone OS and Windows Phone 7 is still reporting on OS's. The site isn't Dekstop OSNews after all.

As for the html / h.264 etc stuff, well that's relevant to all OS's anyway, so there's no reason we can't stretch the definition to include them. Surely if the survey companies can choose to leave mobile phones out of the mobile electronic device market then we can choose to include web stuff in the OS market. ;)
