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.

Distinction between individual comments is preferable, and the origin of the comment should be easily identifiable. I mean, lets face it: Not all comments are equal. While I'm not sure I'd go so far as to say that there are those who always post garbage comments I'd want to skip, there are those that frequently post insightful, well-informed comments, and it would be nice if it were easier to pick their comments out. Heck, being able to color-code the people you pick as one of your favorites would be useful.

This is already possible using the "friends and fans" feature. If someone is a "fan" of yours, their comment header shows up in yellow. If you become a "fan" of the same person, your relationship changes to "friends" and their header is now a light green.

It would be great if this particular feature survives the change.
