Features, Office In the comments on our editorial about language purism and the Psystar case, it became quite clear that language is a subject almost everyone has an opinion on - not odd if you consider that language is at the very centre of what makes us "human". Since this appears to be a popular subject, let's talk about the influence computing has had on two very minor aspects of the Dutch language.

New name for this site ?

Although I really like the content of this site, I feel it isn't always very aligned with the name OSnews as this article really has nothing to do with Operating System's. Don't get me wrong, I love this article. I just don't think the site's content fits it's name anymore. Just a thought...

I wouldn't really say that. It's just that a lot of content of this site is more generalized now. Take for example the articles on the Wall Warts and alarm systems written by David. Then you have reviews of geeks.com products and graphics software from Eugenia. When you add that to articles like this, I feel this site is going into a different direction. It's giving news that geeks like :-) (To Eugenia, David and Thom, please do not take this as an insult as that's not what I wish to do. I actually like your articles)

It's been turning into my personal blog for 6 years now, according to some. Is this process ever going to be finished? It kind of feels like dividing a number in half for all eternity - you never quite reach zero.
