OSNews, Generic OSes Today's a slow news day, so I thought it would be a good day to bring up an idea I've been incubating. I've been contemplating launching an OSNews-like site on the topic of Enterprise Computing. Obviously, OSNews covers the OS-related aspects of heavy-duty business, scientific, and academic computing already, and sometimes news on databases, app servers, cloud computing and other related topics too, but a lot of the kind of news that is useful to enterprise IT people falls outside of OSNews' purview, and it's appropriate to keep it that way. But I think that the enterprise IT world could use an OSNews-like site to aggregate and examine the latest news in that sphere. So my question to you, dear OSNews readers, is this: Do you agree? Would you be interested in reading and participating in a site on that topic? Would you be interested in being involved? If so, I'd like to recruit a few editors to help me launch it. Read on for more details. Update: Are there any native Korean speakers who read OSNews? If you are one, and you'd be willing to help me out with a short project, please contact me.

I (used to) go to OSNews on a regular basis for exciting news about OS technology, and especially alternative OS's, and *especially* interviews.

Something got lost and I think the quality has detoriated significantly the past few years.

Please stay focused.

We are focused more than we ever were before; however the team only has a select skill set from which to speak from. Want more alternative news? Please submit it, or put yourselves forward as an editor. OSNews needs people with additional skill sets to write content for the site and contribute to the diversity.

Expecting better content, when I’m a web-devloper and couldn’t tell you anything insightful about the latest release of ReactOS, is expecting content to just magic itself out of the sky. If you want detailed web developer news, I can do that; but that isn’t OSNews’ demographic.

I've tried in the past to get in contact but I've found any request as to fall on deaf ears - so yes, there are people out there who would like to contribute and make osnews.com a better place but it is difficult when the site manager ignores emails.

Yes, more focused on mainstream stories.

Those news I get elsewhere anyway.
