since when did we a Linux category?

For some reason I never noticed this "Linux" category when browsing the OS/Software category at AOA.
How long have we had a "Linux" category?

Just a few days. We decided we had enough Linux-specific activity to justify it's own category.

From memory there used to be an alternative OS forums that was rolled into the software and bios forum due to lack of use. Then in recent times we've had more vista related threads increasing traffic in that forum as well as more linux users (which are sort of also related to vista ). Given there are a few people experimenting with this it seamed to make sense to branch it out again.

I'm glad because I have already learned some cool Linux tricks thanks to Gizmo and Cliff.
