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?

zima,

"I wonder, does that mean we'll see a resurgence of hobby OS projects when people capable of doing them will start hitting retirement age? :p"

Interesting observation... it's hard to say. On an NPR program I heard a doctor claim that 50% of the public at 65 begin to show signs of being senile.
