My Suggestion "Establish Guidelines for Responders and OP issue handling"
Obviously most responses are on target and helpful, but some initial responses are somewhat daunting.
Well thought out and published guidelines for responses might lead to conversion of One Post OPs into multipoat participants.

First Responders in a Medical Institution have a Guideline, "First, Do No Harm".
So since the First Response is the most critical in eliciting ongoing participation of an initial Visitor, the responders guidelines might relate to "First do no harm" or "De not Daunting".

An of examples would be an OP that puts his question in the Subject line and nothing in the body and the first response ignores the issue in the subject line with a curt admonishment to put details in the body. The guideline could be to Lose the admonishment and just elicit more detail.

A second example might be the OP that includes the word URGENT in the Subject line. If the first responder attacks the use of the word urgent and ignores the Issue and fails to elicit detail the the OP is lost. and becomes a "BOT" or ghost poster.

Happy Birthday - More Linux C.A.D. Stuff

Happy Birthday LQ. Keep up the good work.

I would Like to See A Tutorial Section on the various available Linux C.A.D.'s and a set of forums to discuss particular C.A.D.'s including using Open Office Draw for C.A.D.

Happy, Happy, Michael

learning Linux is very difficult; it should not be this way

Microsoft has a monopoly on making their products easy to install and easy to use. In fact, my mother can install and use Windows without many problems. The same cannot be said for any distribution of Linux.

My idea is simple; I would like to see videos, even You Tube videos, of the top 25 biggest problems people face everyday in the Linux world. There should be videos on every popular Linux distribution. The video has to be extremely simple and easy to understand. There are too many Linux geeks with egos who enjoy using buzzwords to confuse and complicate. They would not be used in the video for the aforementioned reason.

This should be organized in such a way so my mother could watch a video, follow directions and successfully install Linux.

If my mother throws her Windows OS CD into the trash can, then that is the essence of success for Linux. Unfortunately, I wouldn't dare throw away my Windows Vista CD and I work in IT.

Until Linux has an easy to install, easy to use, easy to maintain OS, the Microsoft monopoly will continue.

I would beg to differ a bit on it. There are some distributions that are difficult to install. But take into consideration Ubuntu. Allow someone to use it for sometime and I bet it would be easier than windows after sometime. Installing it is mere 7 step thing. Nothing more.
Installing software is easier than windows. No need to download and install. Just use package manager, search for the software, click apply and it will download and install it and all its dependencies.
And as far as videos on youtube goes I have gone through some of them. Do not remember exactly but there are videos there.
