LinuxStart.Com Now Offering Discussion and Information Forums

April 6, 1999
Los Angeles, California

LinuxStart.Com unveiled a Discussion Forum today on their
web-site. According to Garry Dolley, a spokesman for
LinuxStart.Com. ” The discussion areas are arranged in various
sections, so that Newbies and Gurus alike can exchange tips and
suggestions, which aid in the promotion of the Linux Operating
System.

Additional categories include; an area for the discussion of
various distributions, the installation of peripherals as well as a
safe haven for Newbies, by way of example.

These Forums should provide a quick and useful way for users to
quickly address issues and concerns they may have, or which might
not have been resolved through their search at LinuxStart or other
sites and resources.

The Forums will allow Linux Folk from around the globe to
comment or assist, in the true spirit of universal open source and
free exchange of ideas.

A section called ” Suggest a Forum,” will allow visitors to
suggest topics and forums for discussion- This should insure reader
input and keep the topics relevant and up-to-date.

The organization and design of the discussion board is simple
and clean, very easy to navigate and submit. Each thread is
displayed for easy reading on a full page. A large and clear font
was utilized-this design was implemented based on input from
visitors that the threads on many discussion boards is difficult to
follow.

It was felt that the addition of the Forum to LinuxStart, would
provide visitors with an additional resource for Linux Related
information, and provide a place to post concerns for further
clarification as well as aids to others in their Linux quest!

“We have high hopes,” says Dolley, “that these forums will
become a vibrant and useful places for the Linux World.”

LinuxStart.Com sees its
mission as providing a spot where people can find a great deal of
Linux Information .

In addition to LinuxStart Search and Index, and these Discussion
Forums, LinuxStart.Com also provides Free Web Hosting to hundreds
of Linux Related Sites, and Free Web Based Linux Mail to the entire
