This forum has lots of great information on all things ThinkPad. Much of the info is slanted toward the individual home users. How about a special section for ThinkPad admins in a multi-user environment? It would be a good place to organize tools that workstation admins use to help manage ThinkPads in their company and also to discuss trends with hardware failures or other issues that we see when supporting 100's or 1000's of ThinkPads.

Just a thought, thanks!
Loran

PS- For the heck of it I have created a poll to gauge interest in this idea.

I don´t manage a bunch of ThinkPads, in fact just one, but I think it is a nice idea :)

I manage four ThinkPads in total two of which are mine and the other of my family members. That's no Enterprise so I'm not sure if we need such forum. Besides, the third option made me laugh so I went for that.
:lol:

would this new "ThinkPads in the Enterprise" forum be limited to multiple thinkpad managers..?
or open to the general membership..?

Hi Bill,
I see no reason to exclude any members. Plus I don't think there would be a way to filter out the general public without manually administering it. It might be a good idea to make this (potential) forum only accessible to registered forum members as that would be a good incentive for lurker ThinkPad admins to join and participate.
