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!

Programming and Vintage Operating Systems

On the programming side I am writing a simple multiplication game for my niece in C++. I am also learning the Haiku API, and getting my feet wet again in Cocoa and Cocoa Touch development.

Two weeks ago I got an itch to start collecting old operating systems(I think it was right after the article about Winodws 3.0's birthday). It's coming along nicely, I just need Windows NT 3.51, and Macintosh System 5 to complete the Windows and classic Mac OS collections.
