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.

Well, i read about how the communication skills of AROS are - to get to the juice - quite bad; problem is that being AROS promotion mostly a volunteer-driven effort the real life goes through and make feel its weight; The main outer voices of the community like Paolo Besser have jobs and wife and family to take care; Paul J.Beel took a sabbatical from the AROS show, i am pretty busy with my new job and too tired at the end of the day to tinker properly , Steve Jones and Phoenixkonsole are trying to improve their visibility in tha main channels including youtube, but other less known AROS bloggers might not have the time to communicate... so to everybody external to the usual AROS forum, the amiga communities and communication channels might seems nothing is going on, instead a new distro (AROS broadway) is taking off soon, new ports, the gallium 3d bounty is covering more hardware, booting from USB stick... yes, i understand what do you mean about; in part is also about a common tradition of disliking news in the amiga community - widespread among all amiga and like flavors, due to past disillusions; i might try to improve this from my own side posting a reference to my personal blog articles (when they are ready), i already submit news here when those are important, and am also busy in trying to find a way to promote AROS outsude the usual amiga circles to hobbyists that might find it interesting to power their projects and to tinker easier and more deeper than is actually possible with other operating systems....
