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?

zima,

"Well now there's also Raspberry Pi, with comfortably low costs..."

While the raspberry pi is awesome for embedded tinkers, it's not much use for a mobile OS. Maybe someone will come along with a "raspberry pi for mobile devices". That would be fantastic!
