RISC OS "Gosh! I didn't realize how much discussion my original article would create. A lot of people seemed to accuse me of living in cloud cuckoo land, whereas a lot more agreed with me. I think those who disagreed have either never used RISC OS or just liked a good rant! In either case, I feel compelled to write a short follow up article clarifying some of the points I made in the original article - all of which were perfectly valid." Read the follow up article.

But it's enough. What's next? Half a dozen articles talking about "Why I still use BeOS/AmigaOS/Windows 1.0/put_your_favourite_os_here"?

I'm all for good written articles that make good points showing that you don't need a cutting-edge system to get your work done. They're not big deal, I'm sure that most OSNews readers have dealt with an "outdated" system at some time, but it's nice to see that some systems still have some "magic" even right now.

Now, having these "reply to comments" or "reply to another article" (Linux War is belong to us, or something like that) is just worthless.

I would not mind myself, but only if the author told us of the real benefits they get from using said OS.

That is exactly how I feel about it. We don't need one article to retaliate against another article which will then produce a never ending cycle of articles about which OS is better. I read the articles because I want more information on a subject, not because I want to hear the person defend themselves.
