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.

I'll give you the first few, as I'm excitedly following ReactOS' development, and I want to hear more about Haiku, but the last two are essentially Linux distributions, as is WebOS.
Certainly, they are more differing than SuSE and Ubuntu, but they use the same fundamental pieces.....
The fact is that it's far too expensive to build an OS from scratch, and it's far easier to roll your own by forking Linux, BSD or something else.
