markelo: at least this one has a better argument then splitting the software forum up
but i do think it might cause a lot of confusion.. look at the distributes forum, with all those sub forums getting a reply to a rare distro question takes a lot longer then using a top level forum like linux - general/newbie/software/security/hardware
anyways, as trickykid wrote (i think it was a lot... tho i cant remember where at....
) just bump up the thread in like 24 hours if ya not getting help and if it back to far
this should be fun to see how it shall turn out
