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.

Define 'Took off'...

OSNews, however, didn't really take off until Eugenia took over in 2001


If you call spending all of her free time swearing at posters, berating them for not having the exact same opinions as herself, deleting comments out of spite, and constantly flying off the handle when people dared to disagree with her 'taking off', I guess you're right. She was more of a detriment than a benefit and this site didn't really find its stride until she stepped down, found non-OS pursuits, and faded away.

Yes, she's opinionated, but when I had trouble with the video card under Linux, she was very helpful, sending me directions to get direct rendering working. We all have flaws, don't be so quick to write people off.
