A Linux article. On the Neowin front page. Which made it to Slashdot.

So much for the hidden agenda you keep talking about...

No, the dog says [url="http://www.neowin.net/#/news/tags/linux"]bull****[/url]. Look at the dates.

Considering that:
[list]
[*]everytime someone farts at Cupertino or Redmond it gets frontpage
[*]every alpha of alpha of alpha of a Microsoft product gets frontpage
[*]if a new software release is more (or only) used in a *nix platform (example: GDB) it doesn't get listed in the latest software feed, while [i]LOLCursorFX 2.05 - Cool Cursors for the Windows DesktopLOL[/i] is fine ; a cat is probably fine too
[*]major FLOSS/Linux news are almost daily posted in the BPN (I'm ****ing lazy, too many stuff in my Google Reader), yet, the only ones posted are the LOLdramawhorezLOL news ; we deserve more than this[/list]

Also, the news staff doesn't correct [url="http://www.neowin.net/news/google-acquires-remail-just-to-kill-it"]their own drama[/url]. The official remail blog didn't stated they were going to kill the application, so people where expecting it to be released in open source. Which it did. But was it even mentioned? No, because it had "open source" involved.

There are far to many variations of linux to follow them all, if you find news that you think is worthy of the front page, feel free to submit it. Until Linux commands a large portion of consumer use, you wont see it hitting major news publications.

That is 34 articles in a year. 52 would have made it one every week, and this is approaching it.

Granted, this isn't coverage of every event on the front page, and some significant things are covered only in the BPN area. But it hardly shows some nefarious plot to disregard Linux.
