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.

Too generic

I believe the design looks too generic. A site with the proposed theme might be about anything: zoos, philosophy, movies, my sister's blog. The screenshots show content, beautifully lay-ed out by the way, but nothing that puts the content in context, nothing that makes the content shout aloud that this side is about operating systems and technology.

Graphics and images are great ways to communicate that OSNews is about precisely those subjects. You won't need a lot of images, but some – an image next to the name of the site – and one or two teasers would really improve things.

You have quite a lot of readers, is there no-one who can help you with graphics?
