Linux Section?

  The Brigadier 15:42 30 Jan 2007

We have a section on Vista & other threads are mostly about Microsoft.
What about having a Linux section?
Surely there must be more Linux users out their who read the PC Advisor mag??

The simple fact is that 9 out of 10 PCs are running Windows operating systems, and I'm afraid we're not opening a special forum area for a 1% minority.

This as been discussed before, and I believe the general feeling was that it was not needed. There are stacks of Linux forums out there, that cater for all Linux users.

a 10% minority of course.

My view & it is my own view is that i'm sure there are more users out their who may make the switch over to Linux in the forthcoming year, when realising the measures Microsoft have put in place when updating a pc running Vista.

In the past you could change hardware and all would be fine, now with Vista it has changed all of that.

being a 1 to 10% minority? they havent the expertise/experiance avaialble, as there is on this forum.however I agree with spuds

heck these fingers still cant spell.

  Forum Editor 17:07 30 Jan 2007

What a great idea!

FE is there really that many people using Linux? You mention 10%, if it is that high I am very surprised.
