I used to use engadget.com to keep upto date on all my tech news (conserning gadgets) But I am getting tired of them bashing linux users, Like the last artical I read was about some set of headphone/mp3 player that was supposed to help your love life (not to conserned about the product) but in the second to the last sentance it says: "Fortunately for Linux fans, the $80 Love Trainer can also be used without a partner" are they implying that just because we use linux we are incapable of getting a date or are so geeky that no girl (or guy if you are a girl) would even touch us with a 10 ft. pole. Seriously this isn't the first time I have seen articals like this and I have seen bashing against linux users even in the comments for articals. If you don't like linux thats fine by me, but don't bash its users for using it. anywho my question is does anyone know any tech news sites that are more linux friendly becasue I am boycotting engadget.com.

Thanks, I like slashdot's layout and it does not bog down my schools older windows computers like engadget does. (the strange thing is engadget seems to bog down almost any computer I access it with, must be some glitch in the sites code because when it first loads it freezes for about 10 secs. or so unless I am on a rediculiously fast machine)
