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.

Why do you think RMS would be against that? I'm pretty sure he's said on a few occasions that it is necessary to deal with proprietary formats.

Quite the opposite. He's said on a number of occasions that he refuses to deal with proprietary formats.

And he has not said everyone else should do the same. He certainly hasn't threatened anyone.

You are mistaking his personal preference for some sort of decree for followers.

I'm certain there are valid criticisms of RMS, but everything I've come across so far are smoldering strawmen of things he didn't say, or things taken completely beyond the scope of the intent.
