LinuxLaboratory.org goes live

Author: JT Smith

The beta release of LinuxLaboratory.org is finally live!
LinuxLaboratory.org is a non-profit site (no banner ads!), and runs
entirely
on open source software. It is devoted to providing an information and
community portal for those who have graduated from "newbie" status and
need
a source of more advanced documentation.

A different approach has been taken in almost every piece of the site
to
ensure I'm not duplicating the efforts of other sites. For example,
the
forums are a bit more specialized, as advanced Linux users tend to
specialize a bit themselves (i.e. -- Apache guys don't have to wade
through the
sendmail posts that they aren't particularly interested in).
Additionally,
the "Web Links" aren't links to generic site homepages, but to actual
articles concerning everything from running Linux on a laptop to
figuring
out how the kernel manages memory! You can search the links, and
submit
them too -- along with articles, white papers, and everything else on
the
site.

I hope you all will drop in for a look, and sign my guest book, browse
the
forums, and check out the site's first interview -- my first ever -- an
email
interview with Eric S. Raymond!
