Absolutely nothing. Distrowatch is just perfect for covering news related to mostly Linux distributions. The intended auditorium might not be aligned with that of OSNews, where I would expect more stuff like this one rather than distro-related news.

Nothing per se, but OSNews is aimed at reporting happenings in the IT field much more widely whereas Distrowatch is only following happenings in the Linux-related field and even there mostly about distro-specific stuff. Distrowatch really only caters to those who are really, really damn passionate about Linux and atleast I have no interest whatsoever to follow such a site. OSNews is much more interesting especially because it covers so diverse topics.
