    If anyone really want to know what happening right now in Ubuntu-land from a development point of view then IRC is only the place to be.
    The Bug Squad needs your help.

    Call me a dinosaur however I was on IRC before the social media craze and still occasionally on FreeNode now -- there still doesn't seem to be a large user base. This platform at one time was a great way to get help and in direct contact with developers about certain issues with various programs, or why some things wouldn't compile correctly. Now sadly it seems most of the IRC channels are dead and I don't particularly find the information or user base as knowledgeable as they used to be. The same unfortunately could be said of large group forums -- similar to this one. I'm not sure where people go for help anymore since I'm sure the same frustrations with things are still present now as they were 10-15 years ago.

    I still do. Very rarely nowadays though, and sometimes when I need help finding a book.

    Anime fansubbers (those that are still left) use IRC.
