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).

Yes, THANK YOU! This site is called OSNEWS, not thomsblog.com

Personally Thom, I really don't give a shit what you think. It's not because I either agree or disagree with your viewpoints, it is because I come to sites like this to get the latest news on operating systems and other tech, not to find out what Thom Holwerda thinks about a particular subject.


Ouch, bit harsh?

There are already many "just the facts" type sites out there, and frankly you can stay much more up to date with them. It's the fact that OSNews gives some informed and insightful opinion that makes it special (and not just from Thom!)

I personally believe this makes the comments section on the articles more informative too, because people actually make the effort to put forward well-reasoned counter arguments.

IMHO of course :-)
