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.

Sometimes the quantity of articles that support Thom's views on things compared with alternative views gets a little like sand under your fingernails

Aren't you the one getting paid to entertain us, Thom?

Nobody gets paid except the hosts and possibly the server admin. The editors are all volunteers. Anybody can volunteer if they can stick to it, just get in regular chats with editors over e-mail/IM, contribute, and have a passion for what you do. That’s all I did.

Ah yes, you submitted something once. About an MMORPG. On 04/21/2010 01:48:57 PM, to be exact.

Since we report on MMORPGs all the time, it must have been a real surprise for you to see that turned down.
