From a forum management standpoint this complicates matters. Also, in fairness most alternative OS support at times overlaps, its all *nix in some form or another ultimately anyway. Search functions will work fine on a board index, or sub-forum level, so I see no need to clutter up the forum index with even more forums - its largely off-putting in my opinion and often bewildering to newcomers to even work out where to put any threads asking for help or assistance of some form. The way I see it is this: 1. Windows support 2. *Nix/BSD support (e.g. Linux, Unix, BSD, OS X, Chrome, you get the idea, its everything else). Any more than this and your splitting the content up too much, and in some sub-forums (should you split them individually) it would look absolutely baron. While Linux might be the predominate OS in the current Alt OS forum, it pales in comparison with the Windows forum. The Windows OS forum currently has 126,485 posts. The entire "The Alternative OS" forum has only 8,486. Alternative OS' are in the minority here, the majority by a very long stretch being Windows, so in my opinion fragmenting the Alternative OS forum further by creating even more sub-forums would be detrimental to the aims of TechSpot as a whole, and cause unnecessary confusion for new members. P.S. I'm voicing my opinion as a member, not in my position as a moderator.
