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."

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.

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.

"Lucy, you've got some 'splaining' to do!"

Articles go on page one when the person who submits the article decides to add their own thoughts on the article. It will usually have a "read more" link. Why the person decided to add their own opinions is up to them - maybe they felt exceptionally frisky that day, maybe their horoscope said they should write more words, who knows, they just do.

Articles go on page 2 when they have no contribution added by the submitter. They are just a link to the external article and some introductory text pasted in from the article. They might even be about how Apple OSX 11 will cure cancer, but they are still page 2.

In summary,

Article about taking pictures of fleas - with a comment by the submitter - page 1.

Article about Microsoft's open-sourcing of Windows 7 - with no comment by the submitter - page 2.

Is that really hard to understand?

Honestly, what part of all of this confuses you? The concept seems overwhelmingly simple to me and a few of your peers seem to have made a genuine effort to give you the details.

It starting to seem as though you are just looking for a soapbox upon which to complain.
