OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

I second some of edwdig's concerns. The first thing that jumped out at me (and I do remember Thom stating that the site might not ship looking like this) is that there is a complete lack of OSNews branding. To me, there is no "feeling" of OSNews in the site design, sans green. Even OSNews at the top of the page is simply text. The other thing is, as edwdig pointed out, the flat design. I too feel like there is this huge pendulum swing toward flat design and it is being overdone. Sure, the design does not have to jump out at you like a webpage from 1995, but using shadows, rounded corners and bevels can be very simple and pleasing.
