Peter and Barry J.O. Condon say:

Today Linux Webportal has created a Linux Think Tank on their website, the intention being to provide a special discussion area where Linux Users & Developers can communicate and share ideas for improving the Operating System, in particular users will be able to let developers know what sort of new applications they would most like to see developed, and hopefully the drive to make Linux a desktop OS will be speeded up, as may the possibility of developing a killer application which would further enhance the appeal of Linux.

Only yesterday Linux Webportal added various new features to their portal which was a Linux Forum for the posting of news items, security topics, support and ideas of interest to the Linux community in general.

Then a News Desk was uploaded, followed by a Meta Tag Generator, and an addictive online game called "Luna Lander".

Linux Webportal is intent on becoming the kind of portal that Linux users really want, which is not some clone of Yahoo, in order to create a portal that really stands out as being different and more importantly actually useful to visitors,

Linux Webportal is asking for Linux users to volunteer to help by participating in the project and invite all interested parties to write to them at or pay a visit to for more details.
