Editorial Like many of you, I've been watching the big changes in user interfaces over the past few years, trying to make sense of them all. Is there a common explanation for the controversies surrounding the Windows 8 UI and Unity? Where do GNOME 3, KDE, Cinnamon, and MATE fit in? This article offers one view.

Devices Shipments vs Devices Sold

The stats seemed off to me (not OS News' fault this time) and then I saw the misleading metric (devises shipped rather than devises sold) used by some companies to inflate their numbers (or in this case dramatically inflate) them.

Considering how often this site takes issue with this misleading metric in the past, I wonder why it wouldn't automatically raise an alarm bell this time.
