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'.

...people paid attention to JLG but that was before he screwed up Be.

Huh? I thought Microsoft's monopoly and marketing power, their can-you-say-antitrust "deals" with OEMs, as well as various other things were some of the biggest factors in the demise of Be. Now you're saying its failure was caused by one man alone? Is there a good explanation to support this claim?
