OSNews, Generic OSes What were the big themes this year? Which stories on OSNews were the most popular? We dove into our database (well, Adam did), and compiled a list of 2010's ten most popular stories on OSNews. As a metric, we didn't look at silly things like hits or whatever, but at the only metric that matters on OSNews, the only metric which really indicates what our registered (and thus, loyal) readers loved to argue about this year: number of comments. Yes, that headline is intentionally confusing.

The most popular stories were indeed ones that did not involve alternative Operating systems. But, that does not *necessarily* mean that "no one cares" about the topic of alternative operating systems.

It *could* mean several different things:

1) "No one cares" ...

2) OSNews has not done a good job writing articles about Alternative Operating systems.

3) There was not much news about alternative Operating systems.

I'm leaning towards number a mixture between number two and three myself.

Number two is somewhat something we can't really do anything about - but all of you, our readers, can! SUBMIT STUFF! ;)
