"There is nothing about it that says "OS News".

Agreed. The site owners have been expanding the scope of the site for quite a while now. Search the archives and you will find a review of OpenOffice.org back in 2008, for example.

OSNews has gone far beyond "news about operating systems". Perhaps they could consider a re-branding. Mind you, re-branding generally costs money.

No, I didn't mean that it wasn't specifically about operating systems. I meant that it wasn't in any way unique. If you took it out of context and asked people to identify where it came from, they wouldn't be able to do it. It doesn't necessarily have to be about operating systems.

Alternative operating systems are good when they do something different than those already available. This review doesn't seem to be any different than any of the others. For the same reason why dog bites man is not news, but man bites dog is, this review is not a good review.
