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?

Did a C64 have permissions?


I don't know why you keep mentioning the C64. It was a great machine in the eighties, and like many, I learned to program on one.

But the eighties were a long time ago now. The world has moved on, and such a system really isn't useful for very much anymore.
