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.

Yes. Out of 17 OSes listed, I count only four that are under active development with releases or updates within the last three months. Three more are relatively up-to-date with releases within the last year.

Maybe a flicker of life left?

Of course the small projects always came-and-went fairly quickly. That's the nature of hobbies and one-man projects of any sort. But sadly, there's an absence of new projects taking the place of those that faded away.
