He jumped on the OS/2 bandwagon quite a while ago, actually. Was it

That's the whole point about columnists: they got to be able to
smell the wind before the public at large; he did.
Which leads me to my next point: I don't believe that those magazines'
biases are primarily related to announcers. Rather, they are trying
hard to print out what they think their readers want to hear.
Circulation is the name of the game. You got circulation, you'll get
(And BTW, that's why the press is so lousy as a whole, while individual
journalists may actually be great...)
Cater to the largest common denominator; don't offend anybody, especially
