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.

Again open does not equate opensource or free. People have to really start to get that distinction. Something that is fully specced and open for others to implement does not mean its free. Besides the best h.264 encoder on the market (x264) is actually fully opensource. They don't seem to have any issues and the product is used heavily by content producers, because it really is really good at what it does compared to the competition.
