"In my experience, Linux forums have a far greater number of people willing to spend their time helping out with more obscure problems. Generally I see a bunch of "Try this," "Try that" posts, followed by "Thank you, that fixed the issue!""
in my experience when asking a question in a Linux forum is a boat load of abuse by a bunch of petulant children (must be something they picked up from the lord high penguin wrangler himself). I'm not asking questions that can be googled in 30 seconds (before anyone comes up with that excuse).
Linux user forums and the a**e wipes (rail against that description if you like - it'll tell me where you stand) are the only thing keeping me off Linux except where I need to use it.
