This is something I've commented on in the past, but this time I don't see the issue. Maybe the news blurb has been changed since you first read it, but the brief highlight seem OK to me.

1) What it is? Desktop operating system.

2) Why is it in the news? Major new release.

3) Why is it so important as to earn a place on OSNews? Well, it's one of the few quite successful and long-standing homegrown OSes with also a very small development team. For a homegrown OS Visopsys is actually pretty advanced and since this release brings along several really big features it's very deserving of a spot here.

Off-topic: I personally have no interest in it, but I have to say the author has done an amazing job at it and I really do commend him on that, and his resilience on keeping developing it further. Keep up the good work and ignore the trolls.

The first line has been added due to his comment, I must give credit where it's due ;)
