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.

Generally, when someone submits an article, we're eager to publish it. But if that article is already published on a personal blog, we're reluctant to re-publish it. Because it's not our policy to re-publish already-published articles, we'd need to ask the author to remove it from the blog, and we prefer not to do that. So we ask that submitters not put the articles on their blogs unless we decline them.

Now, I don't know whether this is what happened in your case, and I also understand that we don't reply back with a decision on sumbissions in a timely manner sometimes, and for that I apologize.

We welcome your future submissions.
