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 had been a long time reader however I stopped (and I now visit on occasion) mainly because of the deteriorating quality of the articles. This has mainly to do with the notion of bias and objectiveness that you addressed but also the tone and the style of the articles in the recent years.

In essence, I was expecting more of the style of AllThingsD, Arstechnica, Anandtech(more tech related but still) and less Gizmodo. I know, relating you to Gizmodo is a pretty big insult, but I feel that this is where it's heading to.

This is just my input; hope you'll find it useful.
