while I was reading this weeks issue of LWN - it struck me that
the L in LWN is not really very accurate anymore.
This weeks front page has an article on new ideas in web browsers (some
of which don't even work on linux), a piece on the release of Minix (an
alternative to linux) and Gnome (a desktop that runs on linux, but other OS's
While the sections on kernel and distributions is still very Linux focused,
the sections on development and security are broader scope.
In light of the ongoing revenue problems for LWN - perhaps a name change
could be considered to reflect that LWN contains quality content on a
large range of free/open software/systems/document topics.
Open Source Weekly News - OSWN
Linux and Open Source Weekly News - LOSWN
Libero Weekly New - LWN
This week in the free noosphere - TWFN
Actually - now I come to think of it... The N is not really that
accurate either. If I want dry press release style New, then there is
heaps of that available at newsforge. If I want rampant opinions, then
TSS is the place to be. But LWN offers editorial - news with opinions
that one has come to trust.
Open Source Editorials and Linux Weekly News
OK that suxs as well..... but you get the idea - I don't think your
name is doing you any favours in advertising your great content!
