I think the list would be for for exchanging experiences on various linuxrelated stuff, aswell as questions, if that is what the subscribers want. And I think theres people on Techtalk that are 'afraid' of asking what the think will be consideres as stupid questions. 

And the whole thing with two lists is that you can just subscribe to the newbie list if that's what you want. If you just want answers to basic questions you wont have to subscribe to techtalk, who can be high traffic, with discussions way over newbies' heads. 

Having this list will also make develop our community.
