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?

Soulbender,

"It's rather depressing how quite often the utterly incapable manage to thrive."

It's called "management" ;)

Most project managers couldn't do the jobs of those under them. We do the work. they're in command. All in all that's not so bad in itself. What's annoying is when they get most of the credit and rewords for our troubles while we nary get recognition at all...Bah!

True but that's not really a problem. Not knowing all the details of the work of those under you does not mean you're incapable.
What I was talking about was those incapable people who somehow manage to end up with a career as "rock star programmers/sysadmins" and consequently fucking it up for everyone else on the team, over and over.
