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've only become a regular reader in the past year. I came for the patents news, and stayed for the patents news.

It's something that affects us. As Stallman says, you can ignore politics, but politics won't ignore you. My background is that I'm a developer, but I moved into policy work in 2004 when I realised that software patents are our biggest impediment, not lack of developrs.
