True, there are a lot of these threads... however, the only thread about how to choose a distribution
for yourself is somewhat dated, and the majority of links no-longer work... meaning it's pretty useless.
Even if you weren't contradicting yourself ... if distro-watch, the LQ-search and
google don't provide the info you think should be provided feel free to make a
new thread, and ask Jeremy to make it sticky.
That aside, one of the supposed benefits of this forum is the ability to search.
However, if you have incoherent and inconsistent threads of this kind (which
is bound to happen since not the same well informed people will reply to each
one of them, you're ruining the search) .... you'll get 300 equally pointless
There needs to be an actual article/document made up on this topic, and have people referred to it. How about someone making an interactive program?
Or... you could just kindly respond to each topic here. ;)
The latter is certainly not going to happen, I love Linux, I'm happy to be a mod
here, but I love my wife more than the forum, and I need to work for a living.
If you'd prefer not to respond to the topics... maybe work at a solution rather than try to stop people? It'll be a lot better in the long run and if there is a solution available, there won't be a need for more threads like this.
Just a thought. ;)
And this is where I have to strongly disagree ... I don't think that a whole lot
of similar topics with posts of varied levels are helpful.
