OSNews, Generic OSes We've been working on an "OSNews version 5" upgrade for several months, and with several months to go, we decided to make some incremental changes to OSNews on the existing codebase. The major change, as you probably already noticed, is that we've removed the "Page1/Page2" tabs and instead have OSNews stories with original content and commentary in one column, and news, items on OS-related topics gleaned from other sources in the other. Read on for more details on the changes we've implemented.

The only reason I like the two column layout is because when I used to click on a Page 2 article, read it, and wanted to go back, my browser always directed me to Page 1. Then I would lose my place on the Page 2 list.

Unfortunately, though, I also liked to bump up the font size to read the articles better. Now I have to scale it back down to view all the articles on my 1280px screen.

Also, as mentioned in other comments, I liked the old sidebar features.
