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.

Are there any emulators, simulators, or demos available for non-owners of gadget phones? Just so we can follow along with the news discussions?

I know you can download a live-CD version of Android that runs on x86 machines (and in VirtualBox, of course). I played with it for a bit and it was...interesting. Check with your favorite OS torrent sources.

Don't bother looking for anything like that for the iPhone OS though; in many ways it is the polar opposite of Android.
