Parent article: An LWN reader survey
Ok, so people consider HOWTO articles to not be news, understandably. That may be true, but I suggest integrating them with some hardware coverage. Some articles covering newish hardware -- how well does it work with Linux, what modules are necessary, and how do you set it up? -- would be pretty valuable. That would be a good thing to outsource to guest authors. Someone gets an interesting gadget, does a write-up about it, and it might pique the interest of several LWN readers.
Sure there are other "hardware compatibility list" projects, but they usually have vaguely useful comments and rarely cover newer stuff. I am not proposing a list, just news combined with howtos for newer gadgets not covered well elsewhere.
