    I am new here and I'm wondering if there could be a section for other operating systems. For example, Windows and Linux.

    We have one called Windows on the Mac. That's a good place to talk about other OS's because the vast majority of other OS talk is about Windows either on BootCamp or in a VM.

    Talk about Linux can fit here when discussing VM's as well. Otherwise Linux gets very, very little attention on our forums.

    Dedicated "other OS" discussions aside from Windows are few and far in between.

    Most people with an OS question other than that of OS X will find another specialist forum for their needs. It'd be like me going over to Sony forums asking about Panasonic or some other brand.
