OSNews, Generic OSes As you may know, the global economic depression has hit the media hard, due in large part to the fact that ad rates are in the toilet. OSNews is in the same boat. Despite the fact that we still have good advertisers, our income from advertising this year will only be a fraction of what it was last year. We probably won't make enough to cover our costs. Other news sites, as they've seen revenue decrease, have responded with more, and more intrusive, advertising. We don' t want to do that. We feel we have a covenant with our readers. If you'll be respectful of our need to run ads, we'll be respectful of your need to read the site without having ads shoved down your throat. Please read on, for more discussion of our ad "covenant," and a plea for help, including a plea to all Adblock users to please unblock OSNews.

I miss her rants about operating systems. She is cool. But now Thom is more or less the replacement. The things he now writes are very Eugenia-espe. (The OS stuff, I am not talking about religilous sci-fi)

I'd like to add my appreciation for Thom's great work so far. OSNews is not my main source of news but his professionalism and dedication are the reason I read the sit and its feed.
