Gnome In the item we ran yesterday about GNOME and the GNU Project, one aspect got snowed under a little bit. It turns out a claim made in the iTWire article about the role a blog post by Miguel De Icaza was false, and even though the claim wasn't ours, I did repeat it, and therefore, should correct it too. I also need to offer apologies for not framing the opening of the article clear enough - had I framed it better, a lot of pointless discussion and name-calling could've been avoided.

Yup. Editor OF A BLOG.


Thom, this is really weak for you... ;)

This is OSNews, a news site, not a blog. If all you wanted was to blog, your stories should not appear on the front page of OSNews, but under the OSNews Staff Blog.

IMO, OSNews has been gradually straying from its stated goal of informing its "readers with the latest news on a vast range of operating systems and computing environments, from the well-known mainstream OSes, down to small (but also very interesting technically) hobby or embedded ones". It used to be more original and about the technology per se; now if has become more of a place for soap opera-ish posts or a rehash of already existing information, both of which are of questionable journalistic value IHMO. I miss the old days...
