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'.

Appliance platform, but that doesn't take away the fact that back then the Internet, as a platform, hadn't arrived either.

Which makes the appliance move double stupid and is exactly the kind of mistake you pay CEO's big money not to make.
