FreeBSD FreeBSD's jails technology received an interesting new feature. "Add hierarchical jails. A jail may further virtualize its environment by creating a child jail, which is visible to that jail and to any parent jails. Child jails may be restricted more than their parents, but never less. Jail names reflect this hierarchy, being MIB-style dot-separated strings."

Why not in Front Page?

Did I miss a notice about OS news no longer been about .... well... OS news?
How does "Using Git with Vim" makes front page when several OS related news go to page 2?

Anyone knows of a site that is actually about OS news and not one that just has that in the name?

#1 - Asking "Isn't OSNews supposed to be about Operating System news? Why is there stuff about [cameras, text editors, etc, etc]" is a good way to get banned. The editors are SO tired of that question. You'd know that if you were paying attention.

#2 - The editors are also sick and tired of explaining why things are listed on page 1 vs. page 2. This time I'm not even going to tell you, you'll have to look it up yourself.

#3 - goto #1

Not to feed trolls, but to explain from a readers perspective:

OSNews is nuts to soup Operating Systems. Sure there are other soup venders that sell similar soups, but the nuts help us to critique the soup with far more skill than your average soup jockey. And any other site that focused only on nuts would miss the perspective of soup eaters.

But I would be in favor of a subtle reorganization that would allow you to only see nut stories, if that's what you want.

I've made a similar comment before, but to play devil's advocate, the linked page is merely an SVN log; not that newsworthy methinks.

If this helps:

It's the discussion on the mailing list prior to the commit.

Using Git with Vim
Ask OSNews: Apple Mail for Windows?

Newsworthy?
Thanks for the replies, but it seems whatever way the editors are choosing what goes into fron/page2 will never make sense to me.. I am just going to find another site for OS news.

I rather have few, on topic, articles on a site than have filler articlers I have zero interest in and that do not seem to belong to what the site claims to be about.
