    There is no law saying you have to use ubuntu to go on its forums, after all if you are on mint all the better as the two have commonalities as they are based on the same thing.

    I have ambiguous feelings about a similar observation. I like to see the technical being explored and tinkered with, (I'm a perennial casual user, but enjoy reading threads where people are getting into the nuts and bolts of things) and miss that. But, I like to see Ubuntu changing from more of a geeky distro, to a casual user base, if what we are seeing on UF is indicative of that, because I hope it means more regular folk are not being afraid to try and use Ubuntu.

    I am happy UF continues to provide support for so many of us, and I feel a loyalty to Ubuntu for all the enjoyment it has given me.

    ;p

    Except that the casual users are not the ones providing help here. UF would be a much less useful place if the helpers are unproportionally replaced by newbies who need help.
