OSNews, Generic OSes The last few weeks there's been a considerable amount of chatter on the web about whether or not a news website, blog, or some hybrid thereof, needs comments. Since we are working on the next version of OSNews, which means I've been thinking about things like this a lot, I figured I'd pen down my thoughts on comments.

Most of the time I come here for the comments. It's that simple. Most OSNews articles are little more than summaries of something that the author found elsewhere on the web. The only reason to visit this site is to read the responses of visitors in the comments section.

On other sites the comments section is like the cherry on top. On good sites you are likely to find at least one or two comments that air a very unique perspective on things. That is what makes it all worthwhile.
