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 worked on a very complex redesign of OSNews that tried to present almost everything that already existed in the most logical and structured way; the categorisation and navigation were unified through a pretty innovative system called the power bar. Ultimately it was too complex for me to do in spare time and it had to be dropped, so applaud Thom for driving this new design and cutting it down to absolute basics, it's really what it needs. I liked v3 the most, and I hope we get back to that level of straight-forwardness ;)

Maybe the work I did helped to influence Thom's design a little, if there's anything they take away I hope it's the "hyper-threading" comment CSS I invented, there's no other website out there that uses something like it; nesting is a habitual problem.

If David allows it I might one day be able to show the prototype designs I did for OSNews.
