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.

I agree about the elegant webOS UI. I hope HP makes a go of it.

I have the same enthusiasm for Nokia's Maemo. It's just a regular Debian distribution, with a phone app among the usual suspects. I've linked a bluetooth keyboard to my N800, actually, and programmed in Idle exactly as I would on a desktop; I quickly forgot it was a tablet (buggers that the old keyboard wouldn't link to my N900 ;) ).

And I can't help but love a phone that ships with xterm on the default menu. :-D

Maemo 6 is now Meego 1, which will be an rpm distribution. Fortunately I'm not religious in that sense. ;-)
