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 would think an obvious metric of popularity (besides page-views, which probably correlates with number of comments fairly highly, and number of different readers) would be the number of recommendations. When I deem an article important, I always recommend it. Is there a way to find out which articles have the highest number of recommendations??
