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 think the Year of the Desktop Linux was in ca. 2001-2003. if you blinked or were late to the scene, you missed it. Linux retail boxes in all the stores, Linux distros were having IPOs like real companies, the first pre-installed Linux computers, television commercials, media attention...
RedHat, Suse, Mandrake, Slackware, Suse, Lindows...


I agree, absolutely. I lived that era, it was glorious.
