OSNews, Generic OSes I just stumbled upon an interesting forum thread over at The thread details whether or not AmigaOS and MorphOS should be called "hobby operating systems", and what kind of criteria should be applied. This sounded like an interesting point of discussion for OSNews.

I wouldn't say MorphOS or AmigaOS are hobby OSes. They are niche OSes. They have a niche to fill.

Which is the niche defined by hobbyists with Amigas and OS-compatible hardware, which is a niche unto itself.

Windows 7 was a "hobby" OS for a while, as was Mac OS 10.6.
