Well needless to say I am in favor of a webdev list being set up. However I
would love to see it basically *nix dedicated. There are many commercial
support groups and products to deal with IIS and ASP and the like.
There is an increasing tendency among web developers to use a *nix these
days. While there are still many many web servers in Ireland using IIS I can
see the growth of *nix servers grow considerably especially with the advent
I know I would be biased but generally we have not got a need for a MS IIS
list. If one question comes in about it and some has the experience to deal
with it then yes maybe the question should be answered. But I would see more
questions coming in about Linux web services and apps than anything else
along with design and html issues. Also if we could produce a site and brag
that its on a Linux box with php MySQL or whatever well then I can think of
no better advertisement for Linux among the people who implement the damm
stuff. It they can see all the groovy things that Linux can do and can do
much better than IIS well then we are on a winning track already.
While the IIA does offer some useful advice is does cost to join this group.
Think about those two young people who were just starting out. So if they
wish to contact someone in Ireland about this stuff they have to fork out
$$$ for the "privilege".
Again in keeping with my idea that the internet is a vast library and should
be mainly free I think membership show be free. But anyhow bottom line I do
think it is needed and if we could put it onto Linux well then lets get it
going (Linux world domination can be a reality)
My two bits anyhow
