it's not especially about this article. But it happens with all. Just short copy pastes, and then a nearly meaningless statement.
It was not like this 5-10 years ago.
I don't see anymore technica articles.
Often it's less technical than news from gossip-news-papers.
Why there are no longer in-depth articles?

The world is more worried about the last phone app and the last youtube video than in creating new and amazing OSes (actually, no need for new and amazing OSes because the current ones are already amazing and complex).

In the other side, Thom always links to the Genode OS release notes that are full technical and interesting.

And for new articles, this one is pretty good (written by Thom):
