    Discourse

    Looks like Discourse is getting closer!

    It'll be somewhere some people go to chat.

    It won't be the forum.

    This will be the forum.

    And what is askubuntu.com in the middle of this? I have trouble seeing what goes where.

    It remains what it is and has been: Question -> Answer.

    It does a great job at that.

    It sure does.

    The reason I asked is that to me that used to be what ubuntuforums was all about. But I guess it (ubuntuforums) is more discussion oriented.
    It's been a while since my last visit, so when I noticed askubuntu, and now also the discourse chat, I started wondering why all this fragmentation was needed.

    Re: Are We There Yet?

    Forums and AskUbuntu serve different types of questions. The forums are better for 'vague' questions where more interaction is required (answers from the person asking the question) to determine the problem and possible solutions. Plus the forums have a social aspect where AskUbuntu is 'strictly business' .

    Discourse is not a chat service/room, it is a forum replacement...

    Is this still the current status? There doesn't seem to be much information on the relationship between ubuntu discourse and ubuntuforums.

    Why do you expect there to be a ralationship between Ubuntu Discource, UbuntuForums, or Ask Ubuntu?
    Use whatever OS or desktop works for you. Backup your computer regularly, and definitely before upgrading, partitioning, or installing an OS.

    No support requests by PM please.

    Presumably what you're saying here is that there isn't one.

    When you make a statement, it's nice to make it clear whether you're quoting someone or expressing your opinion.
