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.

I like the light one more. It's clean, it's simple, it's flat. Awesome!

Computer user interfaces ought to be flat from the start anyway. Making them "3D" is like trying to make a physical object flat. That just doesn't work and looks kinda stupid.

Paintings ought to be flat from the start anyway (egyptian drawings style, no perspective). Making them "3D" is like trying to make a physical object flat. That just doesn't work and looks kinda stupid.

Don't try to judge other's stupidity.

"Iooks kinda stupid" doesn't equal to "somebody is stupid". It's painfully obvious.

I think that paintings differ from computer interfaces big time. Don't you think there is a conceivable and observable difference there? [and yes - some people decided that they should resemble 3D object, but I'm trying to explain that it was not a necessary and needed step.]
Paintings aim to reflect reality. Interfaces shouldn't. Do you make letters in book 3D-like? in most cases not, because it doesn't make sense.
