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.

New Idea (?) of MoBo's Linux

I've bought recently new MoBo ASRock M3A785GM-LE/128M. It has all components for basic hardware. I run Debian 5.04 x64 with recompiled kernel for Desktop version and all sorts of x64 apps (ONLY, no x86 emulation).

The idea came when I read a lot on this type of AMD MoBo series. They are equipped with h/w to which there are drivers. This MoBos are produced by many manufacturers and their next versions are compatible with previous models. I run basic x64 Debian with gtk/qt4 pool of x64 apps in Fluxbox WM.

I think we - users and manufacturers - have reached the point where any Linux operating system's distro for every MoBo line (line of products) of similar products is possible and worthwhile.

I see GNU/Linux AMD785G+SB710 Chipset distro. Do you? Not ___universal___ SuSE, Debian, Ubuntu, Slackware, RedHat, etc. All rights reserved. :-)
