Recommending people to buy Windows Vista and deleting legitimate user comments from their reviews really paints a clear picture for me. AnandTech lacks journalistic integrity.
Anand has become some sort of celebrity at this point.
His articles are generally speaking quite decent; what I find disconcerting is the lack of fundamentals therein. We need to know the price of what he's reviewing. Cost isn't something that should be glossed over. I realize that many people in the "Mac" camp don't need to ask "How much?", however a huge portion of their user base is comprised of working class people and their children.
The lack of Linux articles on the site speaks of a corporate bias in my opinion. I'll bet Apple, Microsoft, Intel, AMD, and nVidia all don't want people switching over to it in droves. It would destroy their entire businesses.
Truth be known, there is less difference between Win 7 and Vista than there is between Win XP and Win 2K.
- differences are mostly superficial and cosmetic; they are twin OSes especially now that Vista is fully patched into "quasi-7".
Price. i hesitate to put it into my articles because the next day the prices will change
It has happened several times already. i am always saying, "at time of writing". i think the consumer should be able to check the price with a google search. And i usually link to the product that i am reviewing, to Newegg so that readers can check their "now" pricing. i would say leaving out the price is a nitpick.
As to Linux, *you* said you would get something going for us - here at ABT. It's the indie sites that do it differently. As you publish blogs, articles and reviews, "Linux people" will find their way here and our audience will grow .. and who knows, maybe you will establish yourself as an expert on it.
Enough complaining !!! .. Get busy .. show those established tech sites how it is done~!
