IconInterested in entering our competition and winning a (sealed) brand new copy of Xandros Business Desktop 2.0? (priced at $129 USD). All you have to do is write an article that could interest OSNews readers (might be an interview, an editorial, a tutorial, a feature, a review etc). Read more for details.

Regarding the Competition

Basically, all you need to do is write an article that is more or less in accordance with our article guidelines and email it to us. Some additional notes:

  • If you are not a native english speaker don't worry too much, we can have it proofread.
  • You can send more than one articles.
  • OSNews reserves the right to publish or to not publish the articles submitted. Before publication some editing might occur for content and clarity (this later editing has no effect in the actual competition).
  • The articles should be original articles, not published anywhere elsewhere.
  • Extra "points" for editors submitting articles that we haven't posted so far (e.g. an OpenBSD review, a Visual Studio review, a Windows 2003 Server administration review, a new tech book review, an interview with a very interesting tech person, or something else like these ideas).
  • Any articles that exhibit this text-formatting problem seen here will NOT be elligible for the prize.
  • Again, please make sure you read our article guidelines before submitting, because all the rest "competition rules" are described there.
  • You have a bit less than a week to finish up your article and send it over to us in order to be elligible for the prize. Last day of accepting entries will be the 11:30 PM of 31st of March 2004 (Pacific time) (Update: The competition is now over). Of course, you can always submit your article for publication on a later date if you are not interested in the competition.

    We will receive the article submissions and our team of editors will pick the most interesting/well-written/original one. The winner will be announced at the end of next week. Must have a normal snail-mail address to send the prize (no P.O. boxes please).
