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.

RE[2]: I completely disagree Thom

Member since:

I can think of two interesting projects off the top of my head. I am sure there is a bunch more stuff going on out there.

The first one is GNU Hurd which has been including monthly updates on its website for some time now. Im sure you are going to dismiss this project as it has been in development for a very long time, but the fact remains this is an interesting OS project that gets no coverage here.

As an added extra there is ArchHurd which is marching along steadily.

The second project I can think of is QubesOS, which the developers describe as a Xen distribution with very unique GUI virtualization infrastructure. This project barely got a mention on OSnews and was merely linked to with no discussion on the news column.

In my opinion the news column on the side of the page gives only passing recognition to many of the projects out there.
