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.

Saying that alternative operating systems are dead because they get fewer comments than articles on mainstream operating systems is ignorant bordering on silly. Of course tey get fewer comments, fewer people care about them than they do Mac OS X or Linux. But that doesn't mean that they are dead, it just means that they have a smaller following which is exactly what you'd expect.
