New Distro Forum - Buffalo Linux


Another distribution has joined LinuxQuestions.org. Please welcome Buffalo Linux. I'd like to thank Harold of Buffalo for working to get this forum setup. He will be participating under the username BuffaloHal. There will also be a BuffaloSupport user participating.

Ye gods. Where does it end? Does every FoobarLinux with 1 user need its own forum?

Any distro that would like a forum and is willing to participate is more then welcome here at LQ (and in fact participation is encouraged). The reality is that a forum takes a lot of time and resources to run/moderate/etc. By having their forum here at LQ it allows the distro to focus their already limited resources on building a great distro, while providing them with a top notch forum. It's really win/win from all angles.

Okie doke, makes sense. As long as it doesn't take too much time away from running the generic forums I'm happy with that.

Really I'd prefer the community to push the idea of one cohesive Linux, otherwise a lot of questions that really aren't distro-specific at all will be buried in distro-specific forums where they'll only be found by searches or by accident (or by the few users of that distro). But reducing needless distro differences is really a development thing that will take place upstream.

I couldn't agree more. I'm kinda getting tired of like 60 different distros

Now if it weren't for these small distro's being created where would your distro be at this time? I mean we all have to start somewhere. Look at slackware I'm sure it wasn't a finely popular distro when it first was created. We all start out small then build ourselves into something bigger. You never know Buffalo Linux may offer something that another distro just doesn't offer

I second Jesterace. However I see frustrations with having many distro's. That's why I just use Slack. However my frustrations aren't imbedded into having so many competitors in the Linux world. Instead, I'm kinda pissed at the limited hardware that is supported by companies for Linux. Like, anyone know of a good sound card that is supported by Linux? I mean one that has S/N ratio of more than 105 db, or close to that figure? The problem with Linux is that many companies are yet to embrace the OS for everyday use and specialized uses, such as a sound card with very low distortion... So much for my 2 cents worth.

George
