OSNews, Generic OSes What were the big themes this year? Which stories on OSNews were the most popular? We dove into our database (well, Adam did), and compiled a list of 2010's ten most popular stories on OSNews. As a metric, we didn't look at silly things like hits or whatever, but at the only metric that matters on OSNews, the only metric which really indicates what our registered (and thus, loyal) readers loved to argue about this year: number of comments. Yes, that headline is intentionally confusing.

I won’t be the first to say that comments are not a good measure, since the article with the most comments ever is Linus’ troll "Use KDE".

The HTML5 debate has been most beneficial; it’s something that affects all operating systems, including alternative ones. Thanks to HTML5 content being available I can even watch YouTube on MorphOS. No such thing was possible with Flash (and never will be).

HTML5 will allow alternative operating systems to play on a level playing-field.
