    Linux Forum

    There was some discussion in the newbie forum about setting up a Linux forum for people to post their issues, concerns, ideas, etc. Doesn't seem to be any objection to it so if that could be implemented it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

    I agree. This is basically a quote from an earlier post of mine:

    It seems everyone here uses MediaCar or FrodoPlayer but it would be nice to have a forum for Linux and other unices. This is important since our questions usually can not be answered by most of the Windows users. I believe (and this is a guess) that there are more Linux users than you may expect. Most of which are only interested in the hardware sections of the forums (since the is very little Linux coverage) Additionally, I think most Linux users have homebrewed software (at least I do) so it would be a good place for help and comments for development. This may also promote collaboration on projects and frontends.

    I'm a penguin hugger from way back. and dabble in both OS w/ equal dexterity. Would love to see linux too. --I suspect there are plenty of us out there who can provide help in either OS.

    btw, maybe a *nix forum to emcompass other unix-like OS's which are just as suitable for in-car use.. such as the BSDs then we can all much in...

    Although I'm easy... There's not that much difference to worry whether it says Linux so long as any in car *nix discussion is welcome

    Humm only six people so far... I guess most people don't check suggestions/comments unless they have a suggestion or comment to make. Stevieg: I agree, that why I mentioned other unicies in my post. Best to consolidate them all since they are so close (close enough anyways).

    I think its just the lack of easily configurable frontends that shy people away from using Linux. That and the fact they need to learn a new OS... But knowledge is power. Therefore Linux knowledge = Linux power.
