OSNews, Generic OSes Now that the holidays are upon us (happy holidays!) and the year is about to end, we at OSNews thought it time to finally lift the veil a little bit on the next version of OSNews - OSNews 5. I've hinted at this next version of OSNews here and there in the comments, but we think it's time to make it all a little bit more official by taking in some initial feedback.

Flat view comments?

I've never enjoyed the threaded view and therefore I've been using flat view ever since I first joined OSNews. As such I must ask: does the new layout support flat view or will threaded view be forced upon us?

As for the looks: it's too plain. There's not enough distinction between the different UI-elements and -sections, making it really dull to look at. Thankfully I can always rectify that problem with the Stylish - addon for Firefox, so it's not the end of the world.

I'm with you there. I find flat view much easier to use, especially when I want to pick up a comment session later. I can just go to the last page I was on, scroll down, and pick it up. No scrolling through a lot of stuff I've already read just to see one new comment in that thread. I cast a "please keep flat view" vote if votes are being counted.
