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.

Maybe their opinion might be more to do with the monochromatic look, not the actual flatness? Similar to how people mistake contrast for sharpness in photographs, to some extent. It might not be the actual flatness that's bothering them, but the nondescript nature of the layout. Personally don't see it as a bad thing, but I assume some people would like more "pop" in their web pages. Just an assumption, though.

Strange that I prefer the light grey backdrop to the black, considering I often work with dark terminals and GTKs. The light theme's got a nice smoothness about it, without the jarring contrast ratio of the dark theme. Heck, I think I'll go make a new Xdefaults colorscheme around that light grey and green, just for kicks.
