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.

Well said Thom, what you wrote there is exactly as it is. The interesting OS times have past. The sh*t now happens in the mobile and web browser areas. I wish it was 1982-2002 still, when all the interesting desktop OSes were created, but these times are gone. OSes are now commodities, and people have decided on just 3. Same thing will happen to smartphones eventually too. Only 2-3 platforms will survive there too.
