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 bull****. Look at the dates.

Considering that:
  • 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 LOLCursorFX 2.05 - Cool Cursors for the Windows DesktopLOL 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

Also, the news staff doesn't correct their own drama. 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.
