OSNews, Generic OSes I just stumbled upon an interesting forum thread over at AmigaWorld.net. 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.

Nice article. Well in general i would not consider linux now a hobby os. But there are certain distributions which may have been started out as one mans hobby. 'Puppy Linux' would would be a good example of this and having just recently downloaded it and tried it for the first time, very impressive.
