OSNews, Generic OSes Today's a slow news day, so I thought it would be a good day to bring up an idea I've been incubating. I've been contemplating launching an OSNews-like site on the topic of Enterprise Computing. Obviously, OSNews covers the OS-related aspects of heavy-duty business, scientific, and academic computing already, and sometimes news on databases, app servers, cloud computing and other related topics too, but a lot of the kind of news that is useful to enterprise IT people falls outside of OSNews' purview, and it's appropriate to keep it that way. But I think that the enterprise IT world could use an OSNews-like site to aggregate and examine the latest news in that sphere. So my question to you, dear OSNews readers, is this: Do you agree? Would you be interested in reading and participating in a site on that topic? Would you be interested in being involved? If so, I'd like to recruit a few editors to help me launch it. Read on for more details. Update: Are there any native Korean speakers who read OSNews? If you are one, and you'd be willing to help me out with a short project, please contact me.

As and IT professional and longtime Osnews addict I think that and enterprise focused section or spinoff would be great.

I current read computer world and network world for some of the high level news, but I think there is a definite niche that can be filled. Especially since most of the articles in those publications focus on the high level.

This proposed site could have some how-to's or focus on the technology applications rather than just the theory on trends in the industry.

Also, I imagine that the site would give some justice to open source in the infrastructure and not just the packaged solutions. The IT publications always seem to focus on only the large commercial vendors and total ignore linux as a serious contender IMHO.
