OSNews, Generic OSes There's one complaint we here at OSNews get thrown in our faces quite often: what's up with the lack of, you know, operating system news on OSNews? Why so much mobile phone news? Why so much talk of H264, HTML5, and Flash? Where's the juicy news on tomorrow's operating systems? Since it's weekend, I might as well explain why things are the way they are. Hint: it has nothing to do with a lack of willingness.

I always wanted to try BeOS. But I never managed to buy any PC hardware. Maybe I should try Haiku sometime ;)

Seems a pretty odd excuse to me. BeOS was available for both PC and PowerPC (i.e., Macs). The PowerPC edition was actually available for over 2 years before an x86 release came out in March '98.
