LinuxQuestions.org Turns Five
June 18, 2005 2 Comments
Two days ago, LinuxQuestions.org officially turned five. It still amazes me how far we have come in five years. For those of you how have spoken to me about LQ, you know that it's far exceeded my original expectations. We currently have almost 180,000 registered members and over 1,700,000 posts. We have participation from 8 of the top 10 most popular distributions. We're trying to build the largest general Linux knowledgebase on the web (all creative commons license for now, also looking into GFDL). LQ ISO has facilitated almost a million downloads. Our Linux Hardware Compatibility List has over 2,500 entries. We even have our own Linux Radio Show and Podcast. The list goes on and on. Additionally, we have a ton in store for the near future – including both adding enhanced features at existing sites and adding new sites. But most importantly despite our huge size we have managed to maintain a friendly open atmosphere that is conducive to both newbies and experts alike. I'd like to thank the terrific mod team and each and every member for that. They are what make LQ.
