OSNews, Generic OSes I know that there's a number of readers who don't like it when OSnews covers political topics, I'm one of them. These political upheavals however spell danger for operating system hobbyists and so I dedicate this article to framing the political news within the context of what we are here to read about: operating systems.

Worth nothing, the number of comments

As critical as many of us are of Thom (speaking for myself, it is because I want OSNews to be as good as possible and not because I dislike the content or have a problem with Thom) the article generated 300 or so comments - for more than the average story, by a considerable margin. So as off-topic as it arguably was, it has struck a chord with the readership and so implicitly have relevance.

Either that or it was good trolling. ;-)

Yeah... and I certainly had a substantial conversation with someone about anarchy and learned a few things I didn't know.

Yup, that was quite interesting. And quite odd as well. But it just goes to show that the OP is quite right.
