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.

There are a lot more ways to customize OS/2 (eComStation) than Windows. Each window can have its own back ground be it a color or gradient or picture. You can adjust window borders, changing colors or width.

Sorry but I just don't have time to go into all of it. OS/2 is a lot more powerful and flexible than it appears just looking at it in the beginning.

Yes it is kind of ugly out of the box. My opinion of course. You can adjust it to look really nice though. It's just up to you.

It's also amazing how many more programs you can run at one time on OS/2 compared to Windows. I'm talking about hundreds of programs if you have the RAM and disk space (swap drive). It's takes far less RAM per program for OS/2 when the programmer takes advantage of OS/2 libraries.

I'm no expert. I'm just a fan just like anyone who likes Windows or Mac or Linux or Amiga or BeOS/Haiku, etc.
