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.

RE[4]: I completely disagree Thom

Member since:

HP has a number of O/S's in its portfolio.

Apart from HP/UX & the benefits from their purchase of Palm, they have Open/VMS & the Tandem Non Stop O/S as well, not forgetting Tru64.

We all seem for forget that IBM has Z/OS & OS/400 (or whatever it is called this week) in its stable as well as AIX.

And there is anything newsworthy?
Aren't they just making their stuff more stable, adding support for Itanium and new hardware? I am not following them actively, but to me it looks like the OSs do mostly care about stability and therefore they don't create anything newsworthy. I could be wrong, as I am not very interested into this system. Like you already wrote, it's not x86-Stuff.
