no general unix forum?


We have all the unix variations, but why don't we have UNIX itself, you know like, SCO (hey, they're still a unix company, don't flame), Bell laboratories, Novell, and other stuff?

As I think this is a good idea, I would think since we don't get that many other unix questions other than AIX, Solaris and BSD.. most of these can go in General or even maybe Linux - General if the user is totally unsure.
I don't think we get that much traffic for a Unix General forum to get recognized and used that often for it to have its own forum.

If there is enough interest for this I would consider creating it. trickykid is correct though, we seem to get very few questions on this.

Here's my two cents, you might get more questions if you created the forum.
