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 think we both understand each others' views and I'll give you credit for writing this article even though you didn't really have to.


Exactly - in fact, I think we agree with one another. We're both saying OSNews needs more depth - and there's no denying that's the case. There's a limited number of topics I can offer this depth on, but of course, OSNews would benefit greatly from more writers with more intimate knowledge on a wide variety of topics. Sadly, writers don't grow on trees - and writers willing to put up with public scrutiny like you get here on OSN are even less easy to find.

There's plenty of Google/MS/Apple fans out there right now so you'll always get some backlash depending on what you write.


Definitely true. It's just the way things are.
