OSNews, Generic OSes We didn't have a Week in Review last week, and I'm sorry for that - I was swamped with other things (hence no podcast either last week, we did record one today). This past week saw news items on a wide variety of topics, ranging from Google fixing Internet Explorer to Linus calling Linux bloated.

So popular that it gets some 10 comments in the good weeks.

Yeah because as we all know, the number of comments is the one value we use to determine traffic.

You must not run a website.

Yes and you run one...
Fact of the matter is that on this site the comments are the salt and the pepper. All these called "OS news" are already published on slashdot,Ars, ZDNet etc by the time they show here. You post them to be discussed. The fact that they don't gather the crowd speaks quite a lot. Traffic is done by the people looking for the comments because as I said, the news they already read somewhere else. Sometimes , you pop some piece of article aimed to gather again a lot of comments (hence traffic) but basically with no other purpose besides the flame. That's how in many occasions, readers (most of them very educated) floored you on the first punch. And it will happen again. If you think that you must run a site,I hope that you also have some other source of income.
