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.

Member since:

Here's what you said:

This is why I struggle to take people like RMS seriously. I admire his vision and contributions to the open source community, but his world view is so polarised that I think he misses the practical implications in the real world.

To put it another way, I might choose to write me CV in LibreOffice and distribute it as a PDF, but if a potential employer asked for a copy in OOXML, then I wouldn't think twice about converting it into an MS Office document; regardless of my personal opinion of Microsoft.

And to back this up, you claim:

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

To which I said he has not said that people must adopt his personal preference, and that he has actually said that it's okay to use proprietary formats when necessary. That is factually true and logically consistent.

I notice there is a pattern to people like you. You tend to conflate multiple unrelated things together and then argue on that basis.

So f--k you and the horse you rode in on, you hypocritical c*nt.
