New Linux Software Subforums Created


Due to increased demand in the Linux - Software forum, we have created Linux - Server and Linux - Desktop subforums to help categorize posts in a more logical way. As always, your feedback is appreciated.

Yes this is good idea to spilt the Linux-software into 2 subforums.

Maybe later on we will be looking at a differnt forum for Linux-Desktop-KDE/Gnome etc.

And similarly for servers we will be have one sub-forum for apache ,mysql etc.

regards

Maybe it should be "Linux Server" and "Linux Workstation" since a linux laptop does not fit into either of those catagories. I only mention it because I am having trouble on my Slackware laptop right now.

Linux - Desktop is more indicative of the separation we were looking for. Between Linux - Software, Linux - Desktop and Linux - Laptops you have more than enough viable options for your question(s).

Jeremy only ever creates extra forums or sub-forums if there is a requirement for it. There are relatively few multimedia specific threads created, also, adding more sub-forums would simply create confusion.

LQ Questions on *NIX Emulatosr ?

How do questions on emulators running in Linux -- such as DOSEMU, bochs and WINE)-- fit in with this LQ Subforums format??

Does one post emulator questions in the Software-Linux-Server forum, in the Software-Linux-Desktop forum, in the Non *NIX-general forum, in another LQ forum??

This reader wishes to get further information and see various questions answered concerning DOS and/or *BSD running in emulated software on Linux.

TYIA for any response.

Depending on context, either of the forums you mention would be acceptable.
