    Exclamation Which Sub-Forum to Post??



    I'm planning my next Linux Box. I've done some research, and I'd like to start a thread posting some opinions (positive) on thinkpenguin.com so that I can get feedback: haven't made a purchase yet but planning to do so.

    However, where to post? The only appropriate sub-forum appears to be System76 Support. It's not clear to me why this sub-forum appears to exclude, or does exclude, other vendors.

    What about Dell, thinkpenguin.com, ZaReason, and EmperorLinux?

    Why not change the name of the System76 sub-forum to include all vendors? If at some time in the future there exists aggregates of OP's from different vendors, then sub-forums could be created, for example, System 76 . . .

    Meanwhile, where shall I post thoughts on thinkpenguin.com?

    The reason we have a system 76 sub-forum is because Canonical asked us to create it for them, they supply a moderator, so there isn't any extra work for the staff. The other manufacturers seem to have no interest in running a support Forum for there brands here, so we've actually closed Dell and Asus sub-forums, that are sub-forums of General Help.

    I'm not interested in support. "Support" suggests a problem after the fact of purchase.
    Many Ubuntees probably have a plan for their next Linux Box. I'm interested in opinions and discussion about vendors as regards offerings, quality of service, as well as hardware questions, e.g. ssd's and TRIM in order to make informed decisions about future purchases from Linux vendors.

    So I should post to Ubuntu, Linux, and OS Chat?

    This should probably belong in Ubuntu, Linux, and OS Chat.
