Just to be fair to XKO, their ISP side of things does use linux stuff
(except for where customers request alternative services)

Sounds like a good idea.
I have a theory that the island is about five years behind everyone else for
the most parts.
In time, XKO, Skanco and anyone else (is there anyone else?) will come to
realise what Linux could mean to them.
But for now, the registry of handholders sounds like a good idea.
I'll join - not that i know much...

Hi all,

It sounds like MT has closed the forums under 'political pressure', or
perhaps Mr. Corkill taking life too seriously.

Anyone know of new alternatives? What about general internet/computing for
the IOM? Perhaps we as the IOM LUG can step in for the computing side of
online forums for the Isle of Man.

Actually, I was thinking a little of a grander scheme - perhaps a registry
for open source practicioners on the Isle of Man as one of the problems with
OSS here is that the usual suspects when it comes to support/installs only
know Windows (XKO and the like), and it's difficult for people to find where
to get people who understand OSS to help and handhold them.
