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.

Most of the recent articles I read here feel like they are taken from Ars Technica. Perhaps one of the problems OSnews faces is a lack of variety in its sources.

Maybe OSnes needs to engage more with the OS projects it wishes to cover. I am sure they would be supportive.

I see Thom direct allot of people to the Submit News feature. I would be interested in submitting the occasional article to OSnews but I am more of a hobbyist and don't have the low level understanding of these projects. I am concerned I would include errors or show misunderstanding in what I wrote.
