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.

I'll agree with badtz about the value in OSNews covering the more 'obscure' topics, that's why I read it. News about OSX/Windows proliferates in all the mainstream outlets, so sticking to a niche certainly helps in keeping OSNews unique and valuable.

That said, you ought to consider how you can leverage that kind of niche in the enterprise IT world. I wouldn't attempt to guess how to accomplish such a task because combining 'obscure' and 'enterprise' is a bit of a paradox.
