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?

"I think that the most of people, who have developed their own kernel back in the day, now have other jobs (+ children), they have to pay their bills and buy their own food, which resulted in a priority shift."

This applies to me as well. [...] Money and bills are a very real limiting factor.

I wonder, does that mean we'll see a resurgence of hobby OS projects when people capable of doing them will start hitting retirement age? :p
