but I'm still trying to mull over how to make it easy for new members to post a tech support question.
Would it be worth having a forum category purely for new members in which they could post any question they like. This would save them having to work out which category to post in and, with time, they would eventually get to know the system and post in the dedicated forums. The mods could then transfer the post to the appropriate forum later.
I can clearly remember when I first joined not quite knowing where to post and feeling a bit of a dope. It can be offputting and may discourage new members.
I'd like more Linux but I don't think anybody here is a real Linux expert, though Urmas is certainly knowledgeable in that field.
Linux powers 94% of the world’s supercomputers, most of the servers powering the Internet, the majority of financial trades worldwide and a billion Android devices. In short, Linux is everywhere. It appears in many different architectures, from mainframes to server to desktop to mobile and on a staggeringly wide variety of hardware. This free self-paced course will teach you how to develop a good working knowledge of Linux using both the graphical interface and command line.
