View Full Version : OSTalk Is Back

December 22nd, 2010, 07:04 PM
Bit of an advertisement but I'm sure that some members here will be interested.

For those who don't know OSTalk was a continuation of the Other OS Talk boards which were here at UF. Due to a couple of database issues the forums were restarted several times and eventually closed.

You can now find OSTalk at http://www.ostalk.co.uk .

OSTalk is once again focused on any Operating System and general technology and should be considered a continuation once again of Ubuntu Forum's own Other OS Talk boards, although there is an Ubuntu boards included because obviously the forum is now separate from UF.

There is also an IRC Channel on Freenode, more information on the forums.

Never mind that. I've thought about it and while I wish you luck, I doubt this will be successful as there are far too many other well-established communities out there.

I wonder how many people are going to come back. I mean, it's been a while.

The remnants of the UF, Other OS-Talk & Backyard sub-forums are unfortunately lost & scattered in space & time...

At least it was good fun whilst it lasted.

Perhaps you could add Chrome/ium OS, iOS, and Android?

Thanks, I'll check it out.

You're welcome, have fun.

We've got an iOS Board already under Apple, http://ostalk.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=32 .

However I haven't made any boards for Google's OS's yet. For the time being and since their current offerings are Linux based I've given them a category under Linux which you can find by going to the Linux category, http://ostalk.co.uk/viewforum.php?f=7 .

I'm really hoping this one lasts.

Ours has been going since last May. See my avatar title for the address. We are quite happy to keep our numbers small so we don't really advertise.

We aren't in competition with Vince (or anyone for that matter) though & so wish him all the very best with his new OSTalk forum. :)
