OSNews, Generic OSes Consider the following a little Christmas gift. Some of you may have already noticed, but for a few months already OSNews has seen a shift in content. Not necessarily in the subjects we cover, but more in the way we present our news. We've experimented for long enough now - we have settled on a definitive change in our content type. Read on for the details.

OSnews can’t be everything to everyone, but it can be something to someone.

Well, "read more" is definitely a move in the right direction from the unnecessarily annoying "my take"... as long as the story links are in the short blurb visible without having to read through the opinion part. (Restricting the blurbs to "just the facts, ma'am" would be a plus, too.) Which is not to say that I generally disklike reading you guys' opinions. That's more a matter of disliking feeling manipulated. I suspect that without some strong aversion to feeling manipulated, we'd all be using Windows, never having even thought to consider other operating systems (regardless of what we've actually settled upon), and most of us wouldn't be here.

Which is exactly what we promise to do. It's in the article, actually ;) .

That being under 'read more', I only kind of skimmed it. ;-) And I missed that bit.

But I kinda figured that was in the plan. :-)

Don't take my suggestion as being a terribly strong one. The existing plan looks reasonable.

I just couldn't bring myself to wade through that meandering edict in it's entirety. Perhaps you could could summarize the changed?
