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.

Well, you make it sound easy, much easier than my recalled experiences: Mac computers too old (Performa) or too new (beige G3 or iMac), needing to buy the BeOS Pro disk because none of the free distributions were PPC-capable, having to replace MacOS9 with an older version 8, BeOS only able to boot via the Apple control panel extension...

But, admittedly, it's been a long time. And there very well may have been unknown shortcuts and tricks.
