I'd suspect that calling it 'winshit' is doing nothing to help other people see your point, irrespective of its validity.

Also, I believe that Linux - General and even Linux - Software and Linux - Networking are perfectly qulified forums to cover this topic.
Linux - General is perfectly qualified to cover *every* (linux) topic.
But the question is of whether it's worth consolidating all the topics on the same topic into the same area, not of whether there's already somewhere one could justify posting it. The fact that there are three places where it would be accepted only reinforces the idea that there might be cause to create its own subforum.

In less than 1 second with Google I've found http://virt.kernelnewbies.org/, which IMO basically covers and provides links to all that average user would like to know about virtualization.
That site makes no mention of VirtualBox. This, surely, is the 'average user's virtualisation tech?
Besides, one could find a page that 'covers and provides links to all that [the] average user would like to know about' most topics. This doesn't render a forum for them pointless or harmful.

I didn't see no cake either.

Happy birthday Jeremy.

As I already wrote, I would prefer Non-*NIX Forums - Virtualization just like Programming but perhaps that's just me ...

In any case, Happy Birthday !

On topic: Should be interesting, even if almost too hetergeneous a subject - after all the types of issues people ask about are tremendously different in scope.
Off topic: Happy birthday

Hmmm... Interesting thought.

Plan A) Create a Non-*NIX - Virtualization forum and have most users with Linux-related problems continue posting in Linux - Newbie or Linux - General, or

B) Create a Linux - Virtualization forum and move non-FOSS/Linux-related questions to Non-*Nix-General as XavierP stated earlier.

I think the tipping point for B is that virtualization is far more widespread than programming. That's just my

BTW- Happy Birthday, Jeremy!

Cheers

btw, if you're dividing the forum up, I think the division should be done by
- Enterprise virtualization solutions (ESX/Xen/RHEV/etc, SVI/VDI etc)
- Desktop Virtualization (vmware ws/server, v-box, libvirt...)
- Linux as a VM
