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.

ditching the you-are-prohibited-from-voting rules, which are an anti-feature IMHO.


I think the comment-XOR-vote system is a good thing. Either vote, or write a comment to influence voting. Most people won't say anything that hasn't already been said, so they can just choose to vote. Commenting influences votes much more than an anonymous vote, so it's a matter of balance that commenters shouldn't be able to use both comments and voting to abuse their power of influence.
