    Wow, the re-birth of Other OS sub forum!

    Guess, Ubuntuforums cannot afford to make subforums for the major OS's. In some cases however, you find that Yahoo! answers has become the worlds superforum on everything!

    Good to see this area (re)opened . Perhaps add the home of Slackware:

    http://www.linuxquestions.org/questions/slackware-14/
    You think that's air you're breathing now?

    Re: Official-ish Forums for Other OS/Distros

    A bit off subject, but:

    I was very curious about Debian, so I got a live image of the new release to try it out.
    It wouldn't recognize my wireless router on my laptop, so I checked out the Debian forums. I have to say that just searching for answers was unpleasant. I didnt register or ask anything; but, some of the answers I found were rude as hell. One user told another user they were lazy for starting a thread instead of searching for answers.

    So, Thank you, Ubuntu Forum Staff and Fellow Users for your polite and helpful advice.
