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.

It's all about the embedded OS's

I think it's just the fact that Desktop OS's are dieing but embedded/mobile OS's are starting to be born more and more these days.

We got BlackBerry OS, iPhoneOS, Android, WebOS, Chrome OS, Windows Phone 7, Meego, Tivo's OS, Ruku's OS, Boxee's OS etc.. Everyone wants to come out with their own unique OS. Several of them are based on linux and there are even a bunch of mutant versions of Android being created.

Hopefully this time everyone won't standardize on any device or platform but instead every device will be more interoperable.
