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).

The news is the article that's being linked to. Feel free to click the link, read the article and ignore the editorial on OSNews.

Personally, I think Thom's opinion adds value because unlike most people, he actually provides arguments for how he reached that conclusion - even though I sometimes disagree with those arguments, but that's what the comment section is for.

The only thing I dislike a bit are the references to unrelated 'funny' pictures to describe his thoughts. I think it's a bit unprofessional, but clearly it's not stopping me from reading his posts. It doesn't happen often anyway.
