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).

Attacking someone as biased is just attacking an opinion different from their own without a counter argument.

It seems to be pretty common here but if it was that important they would leave the site. Other than that I'm sure people hate my opinions just as much as I hate theirs.

Sometimes I agree, sometimes I don't. I value the varying opinion more than the links to blog posts with a quick summary.
