OSNews, Generic OSes Almost exactly three years ago, I wrote about why OSNews was no longer OSNews: the alternative operating system scene had died, and OSNews, too, had to go with the times and move towards reporting on a new wave of operating systems - mobile, and all the repercussions that the explosion of smartphones and tablets have caused. Still, I was wondering something today: why aren't we seeing alternative operating systems on mobile?

[i]My generation had PDP-10's. This generation has C64's. This generation knows nothing but BASIC and 6502 ASM. My generation knew raw op-codes on punch cards.[i]

Punch cards?!? You young whippersnapper, real programmers enter their code in binary through the front panel toggle switches, and debug via patterns in the register lamps and nixie tubes!

Bah humbug, electrical luxuries. All we had was sector gears and number wheels.
