It's a huge general Linux forum. Sometimes the search for answers takes me there.

As Jman mentioned, the LQ forums are an excellent resource - they've recently set up a Wiki section if anyone wants to contribute/add any Linux knowledge.

I often find myself visiting the GameFAQs boards, although I don't know why, as about 60% of the population is made up of idiots...

However, it's popular, and also has some intelligent boards. Notable boards are Unix/Linux General, Game Boy Advance Social Board, and the Web Design/Programming board. There are also many other boards, but most of the more popular social boards (such as Current Events, Random Insanity, and Another Place) are filled with morons.

I have to admit that i have had no problems with this forum, which is odd for me becuase most forums are not fun to get involved with.

I once got sucked into playing a MUD and having an accont on their forum. The distaste and sinful nature in the assumptions and derogitory insults i ran into there were insane. I hated that.

I went to either linuxforums.org or some place when i decided to go linux for my OS. I ran into the same problem as before. On my first post someone jumped on my case and tore it up. It was BANA that delivered me here, where people dont seem to be personal much at all, which is exactly the type of learning atmosphere i need while transfering to linux.

So thanks to Bana, and to all.

Like Gareth, I seem to "live" here these days. I also habituate the Sun Java forums, but that's because I'm a Java weenie as well.

I live here, I enter some norwegian linux forums now and then and mostly tell people to come here. I read the fedora-desktop mailinglist as well, that counts doesn't it?

Xandros was very cool for the new user like myself...but after a while it seemed to be limited..I wanted more options available to me...I plan to put it on my stepkids puter to slowly wean them off of Windows...
