" And besides the person who posts the most each week gets a free LinuxStart T-shirt, and a T-Shirt will also go to the 'best post,' in our humble opinion."

This greatly enhanced section, will promote interaction and discussion from Linux Users, Newbie and Pros alike from 'round the world..'

"These forum provide a convenient spot on LinuxStart for visitors, to post questions and get quick responses from others in the Linux Community." One option allows all responses to your post to be sent to you via e-mail as soon as they are posted.

"As we have a lot of visitors, the chance are somebody will get you a quick answer," said Dolley

The General Sections includes: Classified Ads, Distro Chat ( very popular) and such additional fun categories as Linux Girls, Microsoft Headaches, and Linux Jokes.
