Would a Linux Desktop thread be too much?

If so no problem:) Just asking.
If no where would the best place be to place it? Here or in "Why I like Linux"?

Looks like you just started a Linux desktop thread, or am I missing something? Do you mean you want a separate forum for it? What sort of stuff would you expect to go in it?

oh no, not a seperate forum. Just a thread. here in the Lounge forum or in the Why I like Linux forum. But I didnt want to start a thread like that with out asking you since a thread like that may become really really big.

Why would it become any bigger than any other thread? /me not understand... Unless you mean a screenshot thread. If so feel free to put it wherever you want but I would prefer links and not embedded images.

ah ok sounds cool man :)
I am just being carefull since this is like a small pet project of yours and last thing I want is for me to cause havoc with the resources even though the images will not be stored in your database..

Yeah, I like the links not because it would save space on my server (which it wouldn't) but because I just hate embedded images. One or two posts in a thread aren't bad but an entire thread with them just plain sucks. It kills those with a small amount of RAM (and those with a lot of RAM). And since I do most of my work from an 800x600 laptop it kills the thread width when people post large embedded images.

Nothing special, really.

Edit: I guess the thread has been started, now? :)

Well damn. Sorry for posting a redundant post. (Twice, now. Heh).
