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.

Member since:

I checked out countless links to OS's in these comments - most I have never heard of... looking at them I can see why - there's even the OS named after some geeks would-be girlfriend: HelenOS. Anyone here who ever thought that would be going anywhere should crawl out from under that rock they have been living under

Frankly, even the HelenOS developers do not date girls called HelenOS - that would be too wicked. I suggest you go and read the HelenOS FAQ to learn more about the origin of the name and the OS itself.

You should also not judge the OS based on its name or the screenshot. It only shows how clueless you are about the stuff which really matters when it comes to OS design.
