OSNews, Generic OSes Hobbies. Where would the computer industry be without them? Arguably, there wouldn't be a computer industry had it not been for hobbyists in the first place. The ineffable need to scratch an itch does still percolate even in this closed down world of big mainstream technology from big companies opposed to the little guy innovating. OSNews asks, what are you working on? We want to hear from you about your hobby projects (technology related or otherwise) to get a sense of what the community is cooking up for love of it, rather than because you're paid to do so. Share and enjoy!

I've been working on a distributed window manager. Its main goal is for one user to be able to use more than one computer without being forced to manage applications, settings and user data *and* without relying on a 3rd party. Other fun features are also possible.

Recently I started taking Tae-kwon-do classes, if I'm a geek, at least I'm a in shape geek.

Eventually I want to write a secure replacement to Xorg to go with the window manager, like nitpicker.
