[ Thanks to for this link. ] "Open Projects Net, home to such free software projects as Debian GNU/Linux, Enlightenment, handhelds.org, Jabber, KDE, kernelnewbies, PocketLinux, Slackware, Vorbis, Windowmaker and Wine, has embarked on a program of expansion."

"The founder, Rob Levin, comments that the network has reached the point where it must increase its rate of growth to continue to be self-sustaining."

"OPN was created to take on the task of providing interactive facilities for support and project coordination infrastructure to the free software and open source communities. We've grown from about 100 at our inception to nearly 3,000 users, doubling in size roughly every 5-7 months, and we include two Linux help channels and support channels for PHP, FreeBSD, as well as Linux architecture channels for MIPS and PowerPC."
