Features, Office A few weeks ago, we talked about how the rise of computing, a field wherein English is the primary language, is affecting smaller languages, and more specifically, the Dutch language (because that's my native tongue). Of course, it's not just the smaller languages that are affected - English, too, experiences the pressure.

Change the logo?

I agree with Thom that the site should be called OSNews and not OSnews. A possible way to clear some confusion (though not the whole debate) would be to have the logo changed, with the cooperation of the original designer.

The ScummVM game interpreter actually did this about a month ago, as their logo used to include a lowercase "s". http://www.scummvm.org/news/20091030/

Logo design has never strictly followed the same capitalization rule as written English, but nowadays brands are being more and more liberal with capitalization so it can be hard to know what's correct for normal written usage.
