"As soon as I found out that the Linux Foundation took
control of Linux.com, I was very excited to see how it would be
redesigned. There was even a place on the site to offer up ideas on
what we all wanted to see, and some VERY good ideas were presented.
Unfortunately, the Linux Foundation ignored virtually all of the
really good ideas and instead made it into just another news site.
"The fact is, we really don’t need more news sites.
(Although blogging is something we should have more of). Having a
news section on Linux.com isn't necessarily a bad idea, but it
shouldn't be the primary focus. Open Source news is everywhere.
When you bring up Linux.com, that's the first thing you see; news.
There are other things to do on the site though, however most of
the goodies are buried within the menus."
