OSNews, Generic OSes Every now and then, I find OSNews a tad bit too serious. We get carried away over quite a few things - insignificant things mostly, in the grand scheme of things. For a while now, I've been trying to find a way to relieve the tension on OSNews, and I think I may have found a way how. The only problem is - you need to like it too. Read on.

I actually lik r the low-skill quality of the art work. If you can refine it just a bit but keep the same kind of loose scratch paper feel, I think you could be on to something.

Same here. And the writing could be a bit clearer in some of the comics

About the name:

How about "apropOS" (from the word: "apropos")

If you can't find any good names, just call it "OS Strips" or something. At least you might get more hits from Google searches ;-)

I second the brilliance of this, though I see the potential for a lot of aforementioned fanboys getting their [insert preference of underwear] in a wad (even moreso than usual, that is).

"OSNews is biased against OS/2!"
"OSNews advocates poisoning people!"
"OSNews is anti-Apple!"

Or maybe I'm being a tad cynical here...

"OSNews advocates poisoning people!"


The Acid one requires a tad bit of geek knowledge... Oh, and you need to know what Acid is outside of the geek world ;) .

Well, they are jokes. I don't really see any problem. And I don't think that the guy that stills uses OS/2 cares either ;)

If you could make the lines a little darker, maybe go over it with a thicker felt tip marker, they would be easier to read.

It is a good point though that people get too carried away with things. It always amuses me when someone writes a huge response to a topic and quotes various comments debunking them one at a time. I am often thinking, "Way too much times on their hands..."

thicker or black lines was also on my mind.

I agree, it's a good idea. Maybe they could live in a little side box?

Although, in all fairness, the latest Amiga OS 4 announcement will tend to give you a run for your money in the comedy stakes.
