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.

As a counter example, the school where I received by undgrad degree from a couple of years ago has both operating systems and compilers as required courses. In fact, compilers is the make-break C-S capstone class. There is a also a programming language concepts class which teaches all of the common lang. paradigms, with the primary languages used in other courses being C and Java.

In the region I live this is very much the standard, so becareful generalizing the decline of one C-S program you are familiar with to all. I think you are correct in implying it is a dangerous trend.
