General Development A few weeks ago, Ars published part one in a series called "From Win32 to Cocoa: a Windows user's conversion to Mac OS X". In this series, Peter Bright details why he believes "Windows is dying, Windows applications suck, and Microsoft is too blinkered to fix any of it". Part one dealt with the history of both Windows and the Mac OS, and part two deals with .Net, the different types of programmers, and Windows Vista.

I looked at a few of the recent post and discovered to my surprise that the My Take was nowhere to be found. I am glad that you listen to the criticism of your users and the new style of OSNews is in my opinion improved in many ways. Thanks! I have been against the My Take concept since it was introduced. It is unprofessional and irrelevant in that context. I have been reluctant to criticize it openly as OSNews is driven by volunteers and I don't want to demotivate an effort which I appreciate. But of course the editors take is still justified and absolutely relevant in the forums. Any way, keep up the good work!

I think you're overreacting a little. We're going to make sure the main links are in the teaser going forward; we listened to feedback and made the approporate changes.

That said, there's nothing unprofessional about having a "My Take" section. First off, you don't have to read it. Secondly, the basis of this site is good discussion. All editorials are opinions, and I don't think it's over the line to start that discussion with legitimate, sincere reaction. Thirdly, most people like having a little more insight into many of the stories (or backstories). If they bother you, kindly opt out of the "Read More" section. If not, you get some extra stuff to read. Everybody wins.
