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.

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.

All of us receive all e-mails sent to the crew address. I am at a loss to remember since my becoming an editor, a single e-mail you have sent to us at osnews-crew@osnews.com—my gmail search turns up nothing. You’ve submitted four links, of which I believe all were published.

If they’re deaf ears, it’s because you’re not saying anything—and the ‘conversations’ section doesn’t count, we have provided a response to your—to put it blunty—trolls there previously.

If you have something you wish to contribute Kawaii, please address it in the proper manner to the team, instead of taking pot shots from your armchair.

I actually wrote some articles and forwarded it to you guys thinking that you would sooner want to host it on your own site instead of linking it to my blog. Since I never received a reply as to why it was not accepted, I assumed it was ignored. If article quality was poor, the quality of English was substandard then why not state it in an email reply? if it is outside the scope of this website, why not state it in a reply email?
