$username, has reached another milestone. 2,500,000 - That's how many posts we have at LQ now. Wow. Rounding out the stats for those interested, we are just shy of 500,000 threads and have well over 275,000 registered members. I'd like to thank each and every member for making LQ what it is. Without the members, we'd be nothing. The phenomenal mod team has also been a huge part of our success. I look forward to the next two and a half million and remain dedicated to ensuring that LQ is a friendly and active atmosphere for discussing all things Linux and Open Source. As always, if you have feedback on the site don't hesitate to let us know.

While on the topic of 2,500,000, LQ ISO is just shy of having facilitated that many downloads. While LQ ISO has the latest downloads, such as Ubuntu 6.10 and Fedora Core 6, it also has a wide variety of lesser known distributions that you may be interested in trying out. With almost 400 distribution versions available from over 675 mirrors, is the place to download Linux ISO's.
