OSNews, Generic OSes Change platforms. Whenever you can. Ever since I got into computing, I've lived according to a very simple adage: change platforms all the time. For reasons I won't go into, the importance of this adage was reaffirmed today, and I figured I'd share it with you all - and hopefully, get a few of you to follow this adage as well.

WereCat nails it -- while I always enjoy and appreciate Thoms's industry in sustaining this site, and think controversy is good, (it entices discussion, and Thom is VERY good at crafting and leading in this manner) I feel Thom is starting to suffer from a malady common to many prolific writers: 'the sound of his own voice'...

This might be greatly helped if OSnews articles were functionally and aesthetically segregated into something like: News, Reviews, and Editorials... As things are there's a level of digression into 'Thom's World' that may (or may not) interest some readers, or be topical and germane to the standard of Journalism that used to be part and parcel of sites like OSnews, ArsTechnica, and others.

Just say'n...
