Features, Office In the comments on our editorial about language purism and the Psystar case, it became quite clear that language is a subject almost everyone has an opinion on - not odd if you consider that language is at the very centre of what makes us "human". Since this appears to be a popular subject, let's talk about the influence computing has had on two very minor aspects of the Dutch language.

RE[3]: New name for this site ?

We’re not experts in real time operating systems or the inner workings of the Linux kernel, nor the finer details of a UNIX mainframe. We need you peeps to contribute news, articles and opinion to make the spread more diverse than just 90% Thom and 10% the rest of the staff.

Look, I don’t mean to be rude about this, but how can you complain about the content of the site when, if you scroll down the homepage, 90% of it is Thom’s, volunteered free. He’s really not being helped here, and if he stopped, OSnews would come to a grinding halt.

The reality is simple, if you don’t like the homepage lineup, start writing, you can change it into something you’d prefer ;) If the homepage were 90% contributed articles from across the spectrum of users, and 10% the staff, wouldn’t that be better? We need the help; it is for all intents and purposes Thom’s blog, but that’s hardly his fault since he’s the one keeping the ship afloat by filling in all the blanks.
