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?

The reason why hobby OSes don't exist is simple. It is far too hard for hobbyists to develop a sytem that is sufficiently refined to satisfy modern users.


Gnome 3,Unity and Windows 8 are refined?

HA! Designed by Clowns for Clowns is more like it.
