Most Popular/Best Place for Linux User Home Pages
Hi all... I hope this is an apropos question for this forum. If not, I apologize.

I am thoroughly enjoying Linux and this community. (Even though I can't get my damned floppy drive working. hehehe)

I have not been interested in putting up a web (home) page for years, but now I am! I was wondering if there was a place most used to post a home page--something more geared toward Linux people than just geocities, etc.

Do you have a cable/dsl connection? If so your computer makes a great place to host a website, and it is a good exercise in Linux admin'ing to get Apache et al configured.

Best of all: free!

Caveat: If your site becomes too popular then your box will become sluggish when you do 'normal stuff', but if it's just a simple homepage with a few hits here and there no problem

Bulliver, I am sorry to say, no. Stillusing dial up, but am seriously leaning toward cable access.

I've been toying with the idea of setting up a "free server project" to host webpages and use a donation system to pay for the bandwith, but I need a dedicated box for the server (not sure if my 233 will handle it, even without X), so it may be a while.

You might just have to serch the web for "free hosting" and wade through the results for something promising.

your isp should have free webspace, almost all of them do now.

It looks like my website is hosted on a linux box. You can check out any sites you are interested in at , and see if they run on linux or not.

As for a place where all linux people band together, and take up arms against the arch enemy OS's :D No, I don't think something like that'd exist since variety is a good portion of the reason to use linux.
