Well, Here it is! By popular demand, the new *nix forum.
I think we can safely limit the scope of this forum to site administration issues, and _not_ general *nix desktop questions. We are going to try to stay away from the traditional ranting and raving that goes on in many of *nix groups around the net. eg: this is _not_ the place for a open source crusade. We should be ok in that respect.
Thanks to Littleman for voluntering to moderate this forum. That stretches him kinda thin with other duties, so we will be on the lookout for co-mods.
Today, after countless other OS's have come and gone, Unix lives on, the giant among OS's. Nobody claims it to be perfect, but if there is such a thing as a perfect OS, Unix is as good a starting point as any.
I admit I am a neophyte, or at best an apprentice. But the beauty of a good OS is that a lot of the nitty-gritty can be handled transparently. The power-tools are there if you need them, and the basic tools are there if they will suffice.
It's part of the generally modular philosophy of unix - certain applications may fail but it takes a whole lot to bring everything crashing down...
Sorry this is all a bit OT so i'll be quiet now :)
Hehe, you're preaching to the converted - as an XEmacs user I fully appreciate that...
But I think there is a place for buttons and such in general OS / server admin. Sometimes it makes things easier, so why not use it if it's there?
So long as I can still get into the nuts and bolts if I need to, then I'm happy.
I was pleased to see the posts about default.ida?NNN... requests as I saw my access logs full of 'em! Thanks guys!
I'm also looking for a good linux admin forum and hope this is the one.
