OSNews, Generic OSes Almost exactly three years ago, I wrote about why OSNews was no longer OSNews: the alternative operating system scene had died, and OSNews, too, had to go with the times and move towards reporting on a new wave of operating systems - mobile, and all the repercussions that the explosion of smartphones and tablets have caused. Still, I was wondering something today: why aren't we seeing alternative operating systems on mobile?

Everybody like Linux, for better or worse. That's where their skills are. Anything but Linux gets downvoted. The truth is there are a thousand alternative OSes but the press is censored. It's the CIA.


Linux is a kernel, so it's no wonder people would choose an already made and reasonably well tested kernel. Another kernel no one talks about:
