It's looks like Xubuntu is getting ready for a first release. I'm really
interested in this, I think it's going to be wildly popular.
I was thinking that Xubuntu will probably want its own website (
http://xubuntu.org) and possibly a dedicated forum on that site. I would
like to make you all a proposal regarding that site: I would be willing to
arrange for hosting of the site and the forums, as well as a domain if
needed, as long as I could put Google Adsense ads on every page. I'll try
not to put them in an obnoxious spot or overdo it- I am going to be using
this site too. The only thing I'm not sure about is the viability of
hosting the ISO's on this site- I'm not sure if I can afford the bandwidth.
Might be best elsewhere, possibly with Cannonical.
Basically, I'd like to try making a little side money with a website +
Adsense, but I couldn't think of any content that isn't already flooded with
competition. But Xubuntu will be really popular really fast, and you're
going to have a lot of traffic. Xubuntu will need a nice website of it's
own- that's one of my key factors when picking a distro. I also like it
when they have a dedicated forum on that site. In other words, not linking
to ubuntuforums.org, but having our own forum onsite.
I'm not the world's best web programmer, so I can't guarantee that I can do
a huge amount of technical work on this site, but I'd be happy to pay the
hosting costs, and then turn the keys over to whoever is the webmaster for
Xubuntu. I have also done extensive research on web content management
systems and forum packages, and I would be happy to install and maintain
those, if you want. I also have a fair amount of Linux experience, so I
could contribute to a FAQs section or HOWTO section. I also speak fluent
Spanish, so I could help to translate at least parts of the site, or help in
a Spanish forum.
What do you think? Any takers?
Thanks for your help!
