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'm also a little concerned about the comments section. You didn't show enough to go off there, but I'm guessing there's going to be a lot less distinction between individual comments than there is now, which might make it harder to follow.


Great that you picked up on this - this is a feature, not a bug ;) . I've often noticed that some people tend to focus on who posted a comment, instead of the actual content of a comment. As such, I wanted to make it less clear WHO posted a comment, so that the CONTENT of a comment gains prominence.

I love the fact that people's names and identities are tied to their comments. It makes it feel like a conversation with real people, rather than an anonymous horde. I second the thought that this is a "mis"-feature.
