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.

To be frank, I couldn't give a 5h!t about os design. I'm a designer/illustrator, not a programmer.

'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.'

Why not? Everyone else outside of geekdom will. The fact that these OS's are now no longer developed only shows how clueless they were about the stuff which really matters when it comes to an OS - the users and their perception of the OS.

'...I suggest you go and read the HelenOS FAQ to learn more about the origin of the name and the OS itself.'

Sorry but do you expect any mass used OS to have a manual that actually gets read? hahah.... I'm not interested in using something called HelenOS, and shant be reading the manual.
