Mandrake: alt.os.linux.mandrake created

Jacques Le Marois writes:

The Linux-Mandrake user community create a new forum alt.os.linux.mandrake.

The reason of the creation is explained in the proposal:

"Provides a platform for discussion for users of the Mandrake Linux Distribution (http://www.linux-mandrake.com)"

Mandrake Linux is becomming a quite popular Linux Distribution (second place in selling charts). The provided mailing-lists 'mandrake-newbie' and 'mandrake-expert' are overcrowded (up to 30 posts in 12 hours at each list).
Although Mandrake Linux is derived from Redhat, which is good covered in Usenet, it evolved to a distribution with its own standing and peculiarities. Since it is especially designed for people completely new to any kind of OS apart from Redmond's, there is a considerable urge for a forum like the proposed one.
alt.os.linux.mandrake would line up well with groups like alt.os.linux.slackware and alt.os.linux.caldera.

Please consider this proposal and post your comments.

Thank you!
