The front page of linuxformat.co.uk/linuxformat.com has been promising an update for about six weeks now and nothing has changed. It also seems that the number of questions posted to the LXF forums has been slowing down over the last few weeks. Either many people have suddenly become Linux competent in a very short time or the number of people visiting the LXF web site has dropped considerably.
Is the release of TuxRadar.com as a news site and the change from .co.uk just too much of a change at the same time? In my opinion - yes!
LXF already had an RSS news feed, forum feed and blog feed with a very strong brand name established over nearly 10 years. Now LXF is deliberately splitting the the audience by sending people to TuxRadar.com for the latest news and leaving a new www.linuxformat.com
basically for these forums.
I for one think this is an error.
