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?

Too bad most portable systems (tablets, phones) don't let you do that. If they did, they might be serious equipment that could actually be used to do and store and access real work. Ubuntu for portable computers is supposedly working on that... it's one of the more interesting features. The problem will be, most likely, the fact that you will most likely be stuck with whatever operating system it came with, and whatever specs it came with.
