First of all I thank all the community members for showing such zest and enthusiasm for LinMatrix, and I want to convey that what so ever has been done so far is just temporary. The weird looking logo, blue color-scheme, forum structure, everything is temporary. Separate forums for LinMatrix have been created so that we don't miss anything regarding Linux, till such time LinMatrix is under process.


What LinMatrix would be?
LinMatrix will be a community for Linux, as WinMatix is for Windows. It will have it's own domain name (linmatrix.com), own logo and color-scheme. LinMatrix will have it's own news page where features stories, popular posts and new topics will be listed related to Linux only.


How it will be made?
Managing two forum softwares is a tedious job so LinMatrix will be created within WinMatrix, but once it will be ready, no connection to WinMatrix will be visible to the LinMatrix visitors. Some forums have been created for now but these forums will be renamed, moved, merged as community suggests or decides.


What LinMatrix needs from the community?
Almost everything! WinMatrix has totally been created by the community, in the same manner we will need regular forum posters, moderators, and news posters for LinMatrix. Many community members have already PMed me regarding their concern about LinMatrix, (I haven't replied to anyone so far so don't take it as if your proposals haven't been paid heed to. I'll contact you soon as and when needed.)

Presently we require active members, who can post news and tutorials for LinMatrix. Community cannot exists without regular posters.

Very soon the LinMatrix news page will be created, then the process of separating it from WinMatrix would be started, after then we will work over giving it a unique look and logo etc.


:bulletgreen: LinMatrix Forums

PS: Please post in the comments what types of forums should be further created in LinMatrix.

Great news. A brand-new technical cafe for linux users.


P.S. So the next project (after LinMatrix) might be MacMatrix? :o

Wait... It's just a WinMatrix subforum! Will you make it as separate one? Also I can provide hosting.

Ubuntu is the most popular Linux distribution so I think it should has it's own forum.

Awesome! I figured it went official after I saw General Linux Discussion as a forum when I was on the Active Content page. :P

ok. I kindof seeing what Jatin is doing. Pretty much having a ton of posts and news articles already present before launch. not bad.

I retract my previous thoughts.

The Mac OSX doesn't need to have the "?". It looks unprofessional like we are questioning it's existence. Also, It doesn't need to be like "one" forum.

Ok start, but improvements are needed.

Great news!!! :D

One more thing: is it really necessary to have the question mark on it? Also the descriptions is ridiculous.

Android is going to be a part of LinMatrix, because Android is Linux.
