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.

For most sites on the web I would heartily agree with you. Comments, especially on general news sites, mostly seem to be magnets for the reactionary right, sanctimonious socialists, rabid racists and the dangerously deranged.

However I find that on OSNews, even when people are busying themselves proving the bike-shed principle, the comments do still add value. A lot of facts seem to come out and the original authors (not always Thom) often feels the need elaborate on their articles and defend them, which I like a lot.

In other words I think Thom is right to emphasise comments.
