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.

As I understand it, it was being handwritten:

I’m hand writing the next version of OSnews. It is going to be faster than any other news site. It will be incredibly elegant, and well designed, and it will be HTML5. It will work in IE. It is the best piece of code I’ve ever written and it is leagues ahead of the game.

If you can’t compete with Notepad, then you don’t know your craft well enough. Get learning, all the knowledge is freely available on the Internet.

With the decision now to use Drupal, I think that speaks volumes against the practicality of pure text-based editors for managing a large site. While it can be done, it simply does not scale. Drupal, Dreamweaver, Wordpress, Notepad, TextMate, etc. are all tools that are a means to an end. It's when you get too attached to your means that you forget the end goal.

In this case, producing a website that is of maintainable complexity and actually getting it done. It's the difference between walking the walk and talking the talk.
