    Windows forum?

    We have an Apple and a Unix forum. Since a lot of people have to use Windows at work / school, we see Windows-related questions popping up from time-to-time. So I'm consider adding a Windows forum. Any thoughts?

    The idea is to help out members of this board with their Windows-related problems/questions just like the Mac and Unix forums, so they don't have to go somewhere else.

    Re:Windows forum?

    You know, I'm all for adding a Windows section. My biggest reason is that I have stopped using Windows except when something is wrong with my Linux computer, so I can't always be assured that I know how to fix a windows problem. I have many friends who use just windows, so it would be nice to be able to point them to this forum (with the hope that they will start using linux).

    Just my two pesos.

    Cheers

    I think that it is a great idea. Like you said cloverm help current LJr members with their Windows problems. Not all of us have the luxury of being able to run Linux 24/7. I dual boot Windows and Linux, and stay mainly in Windows cuz I don't wanna hear my wife complain every time she goes to use the computer that Linux is up and running.

    Anyway I think its a great idea!!

    I think thats a beautiful idea. We all have to admit that we are pretty much all forced to deal with the evil flag of satan from time to time (or for some of us, all day). I see that being a pretty good place for more windows centric help.
