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.

Keep white on black!

What strikes me the most about the new design is that it's background is dark grey. Please use white colour instead since it's known that black text on white background is best suited for reading.

The other design with black background and grey text isn't much better. It lacks distinction, and reminds me just little bit too much of a Hack a Day website.

Otherwise it's a good start for a new design.

dark grey


You may need to check your monitor's settings. There's no dark grey.

This is the background colour: http://www.colorcodehex.com/f0f0f0/

After adjusting, it's still grey, and grey text on top of it is difficult to read and stress eyes.
