Does the Linux Wiki have a template for pages promoting a distro, like Wikipedia does? If so, I think it should be applied to the Linux Tutorial for Beginners page.
What's on your mind?
How do I use [Windows] CMD in Linux?
I may have done something wrong on the Ubuntu page with the code. I did update it though. Regret that, and it's so hard to undo an edit, so SOMEONE UNDO IT FOR ME!
Would the articles benefit from greater standardization? It doesn't matter if they are written in British English, American English, etc, but I think they could look cleaner if the dates were in a common format (I vote big endian, i.e. year month day), and if architecture terms were standard across articles (e.g. right now some articles use x86-64, others use AMD64).
I would prefer to see i386, i586, and i686 replaced with IA-32 in distro articles. If readers need clarification of what IA-32 includes, they can click on the link and read the [[x86]] article, or go to Wikipedia. I also think breaking ARM into AArch64 and AArch32 would be logical.

I'd like to suggest asking Wikia to add three custom namespaces to help with article organization. The new namespaces would be:
- Application - This would be for articles about specific applications, such as Firefox, Audacity, etc...
- Tutorial - This would be for articles about how to perform certain tasks, such as Compiling Scim-bridge and Related Packages.
- Terminology - This would be for articles about file formats, file systems, hardware platforms, and articles about commands that don't refer to a specific implementation (such as sudo).
Adding these namespaces would leave the main namespace free for distros, meaning you could find a random distro just by clicking Random page on the navbar, and not have to put them all in a large category (like Category:Distros). The main disadvantage to this would be that things like Special:Uncategorizedpages wouldn't show stuff in the new namespaces, but this can be mitigated by having DPL enabled.
Several features exist such as Blogs, Achievments etc. These could possibly enabled here. As there very few editors, I guess no one will reply. But, if someone does, post your opinion.
As should be obvious, the new forum feature has been activated. The old one was never used, and this one probably won't be either, but it's a bit nicer to look at.
