    No. AskUbuntu is a community support site, like ubuntuforums.org.

    But more Canonical staff post there and at http://ubuntu-discourse.org/, AFAICT.
    Users can easily damage their systems by using sudo su if they aren't experienced enough.

    Re: the other website

    It is a question and answer site for Ubuntu users and developers.

    Each site handles different types of questions and discussion.
    If I am asking/answering specific technical questions about Ubuntu, developer input is helpful.
    If I am asking/helping individual users troubleshoot common or obvious problems, developer input does not add value.
    I think that the number of Canonical staff on each site is not a very relevant metric.
    Both are useful sites.

    Totally agree.

    I go there as well.

    You're entitled to your opinion as I am to mine
    The effect of Canonical staff "patronizing" one over the other is visible to some at least.
    Users can easily damage their systems by using sudo su if they aren't experienced enough.

    Re: the other website

    Thanx for the info. Reason I asked is because when I search Google for answer to problem before posting here I usually get directed to askubuntu first, then this site appears further down the list of hits. Just wandering how good they were.
