OSNews, Generic OSes Considering the polarising topic of software patents and related IP litigation is coming up a lot lately, I felt the need to write a few words on this thing called 'bias'. This word is being thrown around a lot, but I get the feeling many people are unclear as to what, exactly, it means. Because contrary to popular opinion, there's nothing wrong with being being biased. In fact, there's no such thing as unbiased blogging (or even unbiased journalism).

I never understood why people got so worked up over such things as biased reporting... If you can't deal with it, just go elsewhere!

Maybe I'm biased because many of Thom's opinions happen to line up with mine - of course, I'm not entirely sure if that's a result of his bias or not - did I start reading OSNews before I formed those opinions? Or did reading OSNews lead me to form those opinions? hmmm....

Maybe a little of both ;)
