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.

"When I was young, I didn’t know any old people. When we did the microprocessor revolution, there was nobody old, nobody. It’s weird how old this industry has become.”

For one, this is horseshit but this attitude probably explains why DOS and Windows sucked so bad. Funny how much things improved in Windows when the old guys (Cutlers team) came on board.
This whole "young vs old" is getting pretty tired though. Age is a physical reality, "old" is a state of mind. Many people of a young age are old and many people of an advanced are are not.
