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.

good old stack level

I rofl'd indeed



I can say there is a new stack level where an increasing and yet significant % of the things are being built upon: the web browser.

so, in that sense, I see the topic shift as a natural effect.

I bookmarked osnews years ago (I did not start to use firefox until 0.9 and from time to time I discover in my folders screenshots of the mozilla suite with the "os" boomark there), and not because of the _os_ news, but because of the high rate of interesting (for my taste) news, no matter the topic. Actually, I did not notice this evolution until I read this post 5 minutes ago.

You're not the only one there. I've always loved OSNews because of all the various different topics and its usability. Even though f.ex. patent issues don't really matter that much to me since I live in such a wonderful country I still like to be up-to-date on these matters, and who knows, maybe they will matter to me too in the future?

As such, don't ever take OSNews away from me ;) <3
