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 agree wholeheartedly.

This seems like a step back, but that's how I feel about all other metro-ish interfaces out there. It just feels like we cannot display any images because it's '99 and people are using 56K modems.

If you must keep "text oriented" - wall of text design, at least drop the gray background. Please, pretty please!


FTR, I dislike skeuomorphism more, but there is a world in between a paper rendered hanging on a fake wood door, and ASCII art. BTW, ASCII art would be way more cool. ;)
