Most Popular/Best Place for Linux User Home Pages


Hi all... I hope this is an apropos question for this forum. If not, I apologize.

I am thoroughly enjoying Linux and this community. (Even though I can't get my damned floppy drive working. hehehe)

I have not been interested in putting up a web (home) page for years, but now I am! I was wondering if there was a place most used to post a home page--something more geared toward Linux people than just geocities, etc.

Thanks!

Do you have a cable/dsl connection? If so your computer makes a great place to host a website, and it is a good exercise in Linux admin'ing to get Apache et al configured.

Best of all: free!

Caveat: If your site becomes too popular then your box will become sluggish when you do 'normal stuff', but if it's just a simple homepage with a few hits here and there no problem

I've been toying with the idea of setting up a "free server project" to host webpages and use a donation system to pay for the bandwith, but I need a dedicated box for the server (not sure if my 233 will handle it, even without X), so it may be a while.

You might just have to serch the web for "free hosting" and wade through the results for something promising.

It looks like my website is hosted on a linux box. You can check out any sites you are interested in at www.netcraft.com , and see if they run on linux or not.

As for a place where all linux people band together, and take up arms against the arch enemy OS's No, I don't think something like that'd exist since variety is a good portion of the reason to use linux.

Cool
