Can we change the name of the Linux board to *nix Board? There are more flavors of Unix than just Linux.

It's not a bad idea idea frenchfry164, but I don't think it will make a big difference; most people ask questions about linux only!

Programming ones make it to the Linux board.


Are there going to be any?
Yeah, really. I know of like 2 people here who use BSD, 3 if vVv is still around.

I'm making it there, in a few weeks I hope, when FreeBSD 4.9 is available...

FreeBSD is my 'nix. But I'm fine with it being called the Linux board. Since most people know what applies for Linux often applies for FreeBSD, and the other way round.
