It's certainly different, but i don't see the issue.

The issue is that some people like to bitch... a lot... about anything.

From the linked article: "Then, there's pluizebol, who says that, because of the icons, he removed Windows 10 from his computer."
Ridiculous. It would've been easier to change the icons. What next? Don't like a default font or default color scheme? Remove the entire OS!

From the slashdot headline:

The population of Hillsboro, Oregon is becoming vocal about the state's enterprise zone program offering enormous tax concessions

First sentence from the fn article:

OregonLive readers reacted quickly to a story posted Monday morning outlining how out-of-state companies are building data centers in Hillsboro, attracted by massive property tax breaks.

What a joke. The commenters on OregonLive now represent the entire population of Hillsboro? Half of the article is just reprints of readers' comments on the original story.

Nothing is finished until the paperwork is done.
