Initially it was to get support, now it's mainly to give it (and lurk in the Otaku thread (: ). Since I'm getting free software, I might as well try and give something back...

I put the last six things. By "Other", I guess I include Free-Libre software advocacy. As well, the self-serving motivation to get more people to use Ubuntu so that Free and open source software will get even better.

To learn tips and tricks - I wanna learn everything that has to do with Linux and Ubuntu.

To give help (basic desktop support) - I am still a n00b, but I do have courage to teach/give support to those who has faced the SAME problem as me or that I know the answer.

To get help (basic desktop support) - As a newbie, I really need support/help. Ah, and I don't hesitate to ask questions, since I know people here are helpful, and thus I also try to be helpful to others who are newer than me [And return to To give help (basic desktop support) ]

1. First came here to get help.
2. Then kept checking the forum occationaly for no reason when feeling bored.
3. I realized after a while that I learn more from looking for people to help in the beginners section then from the way too few problems I experience first hand.

Originally: to get support

Now: I enjoy the community, I want to give back by trying to help others when I can, and sometimes stuff happens/is said in these forums that amuses me terribly (in other words, it's a fun place to hang out).
