[News] [Rival] Neowin Exposed as a "Windows Shill Site"

Hash: SHA1

Sam Symons…maybe youre new here….

| So the newest Neowin reporter is a bit of a joker?  A bit of a comedian?  Im 
| not sure, but surprise, surprise, what he is (and this is quoted from his 
| profile)  
| “…..works as a Microsoft Student Partner in his spare time.”
| Marvellous.
| Now to continue this on (and I wasnt going to mention this at the time 
| because it wasnt blogworthy for an article in its own right) 


The “big boys” are coming!

| Neowin, its reporters and its users can play with Windows all day I really 
| dont mind.  What I mind is when something is posted that (IMO) is likely to 
| mislead someone into an incorect assumption about an alternative to Microsoft 
| products.   
| I wont draw inference from Simon360s posts (which are quite typical from 
| reporters from the Neowin site who quite happily swear, insult and in one 
| case have a girlfriend pop up in defense.)  What sort of outfit is being run 
| here? I dont see Joe Willcox, Mary Jo Foley or any of the Microsoft employees 
| Ive had the pleasure of debating with acting like this.    



NeoWin reporter impartial? - I SUSEpect not!

| The point I made at the time (and still maintain) is that someone who has
| used Microsoft products only is hardly in a possition to call themself (IMO)
| either a tech enthusiast and/or an expert.  They are Microosoft product
| experts in my opinion and as I recently said on another site, you wouldnt be
| happy taking your car to a garage that only had experience in one model of
| car that was different to yours, the same applies to the IT world.
| I still have my doubts as to the impartiality of certain reporters from the
| NeoWin site.  Of course this is my opinion so let me place the evidence in
| front of you, the reader and you can decide for yourself.

| He said “Build my own Linux OS based on my needs is now few clicks away!

| So we hit upon the subject of impartiality again.  For those that dont know,
| it is my opinion that openSUSE is about the closest thing you can get to a
| Microsoft approved Linux distro (since “the deal” that Novell and Microsoft
| signed a few years ago)  For those who are not aware of this deal you can
| find out more information here: http://www.novell.com/linux/microsoft/
