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.

Ah The memories.
I still have (on paper tape) the source code to a Video Device driver for RT-11 & RSX-11M/Plus I wish I still had a PDP-11. It is very easy to make home grown interfaces that hook into the UniBus. A few 74 series IC's and you are done but, getting them these days is a problem.
The Q-Bus was more of a problem as it was multiplexed like most modern ones.
