I wonder why every tiny beta build of Mac OS X makes it on osnews.com (yes I know, this is a minor point release, but all the betas where announced here as well), but not the up-to-date and innovative Linux flavours that are not yet that known? A few days ago T2 7.0-rc2 was released for as many as 5(!) pre-built architectures: ppc, ppc64, sparc64 and i386 + amd64 and submitted by our team to osnews.com. Of course as non-Mac OS it didn't made it to the readers:

Right, I'll file this under "OSNews is biased towards $A, and they hate $B". Replace $A with whatever you hate to see, and $B with whatever you'd like to see more.

Just take a look at the OSNews front page. This is the *sole* Mac article. Theres articles about C++ porting, Fedora, Gnome, IE, Haiku, etc. It's a broad range of articles. If you look at the past 7 days announcements, you'll see that there aren't many Mac related news bits too. In fact, Linux features a lot more prominently. 4 for OS X (5 if you count Darwin), and 10 for Linux.

Seriously, cut the guys at OSNews some slack for not posting news to your project?

Apple has released a whole lot more Leopard beta builds than we reported on. Of course, you could test that out yourself, but hey, why let the facts get in the way?

We have a very simple policy on OSNews: we only report on the largest distributions, and every now and then, on the special ones. We have reported on T2 in the past, and we will in the future. It's just that right now, I chose not to - waar gehakt wordt, vallen spaanders. We are not LinuxNews, get over it already. DistroWatch is better at that anyway.

Oh, and behaviour like this really doesn't help the T2 project in any way with getting its name on OSNews.
