OSNews, Generic OSes Once upon a time, operating systems used to matter a lot; they defined what a computer could and couldn't do... Today, there's only one operating system: Unix (okay, there are two, but we'll get to that). This is why I contend that the OS doesn't matter - or that we need to take another look at the word's content, at what we mean when we say 'Operating System'.

What matters is the experience you get, the high level stuff, not what's under the hood. The OS, as a part of the system that a consumer needed to know before buying, died a few years ago. As we move towards a new age, these things won't matter. Integration to Facebook will matter more.
