General Linux Discussions

  • linux-list is a Linux mailing list that covers a variety of Linux topics with a high signal-to-noise ratio.
  • linux-kernel is the high-traffic list where arguments over kernel development happen. Great if you're writing a driver or porting to new hardware, but bad for end-user questions. Do your homework before posting.
