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 don't really have much to say about the rest of your comment, but this exerpt baffles me... UNIX and all of its derivates were specifically designed with multi-user environments in mind as they were meant for use in supercomputers.

And you can't really design a multi-user system without designing multitasking along.

which was not designed with multitasking in mind at all
