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 can't believe there are over 70 comments in here and not a single person has mentioned Solaris or OpenSolaris. This is very indicative of a desktop-centric crowd. Personally I still consider myself a BSD-first proponent, but you can't deny or overstate the contributions that Solaris (Sun, R.I.P.) have made to the *nix community.

Macwinilux, my ass. You're just not trying.
