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'd also enjoy this site a lot more if there were more fact and less opinion. Say, more in-depth product reviews with actual information on what actually composes a product release, benchmarks of new systems, consistent news on OS releases, no matter who releases them. And I mean real hands on reports, not a discussion of a Youtube video as "news". Of course, this actually takes a lot more work (something which separates the real journalists from the bloggers I suppose, doing actual research)

Since a lot things are turning into platforms these days, one could widen the scope of "OSNews" to also include these new emerging platforms. Web platforms and smartphones have both become a lot more in common with operating systems than they used to.
