I have visited linuxquestions.org throughout the years. There is a large pool of very intelligent users/admins/gurus. It's the best place to receive information\solutions to questions\problems on the topic of linux.

I'm not one to BS, I thought about it and considered all the other sites/forums I've been on.

Echoing what others have said, but congratulations Jeremy! I think I've been here for a good 10 of those years and how things in the linux world have changed in that time! More than I ever imagined!

Cheers,
Steve

This has been the forum for any Linux help to go to. If you dont find Linux solution here, probably your question is wrong or the solution does not exist in the Linux world. And thanks Jeremy.

Hi Jeremy, only just noticed I've been made an honorary, year-long Contributing Member. Thanks.
I would make it permanent if my financial state was healthier.

Every now and then I'm forced to make a foray into the cruel cold world of Windows and Mac programming.

I'm usually horrified by how unwelcoming and unhelpful it is.

It's been a few years since I last went over to "The Dark Side of the Internet", the previous times were so painful.

But the one thing I have struck by over the decades is this...

To get a Good Answer in the Windows/Mac world was often hard. Often you have to pay for it, often the trolls and brats spend more time hating you for being new than answering.

To get a Good Answer in the Linux world... You just have to ask. Yip, there are better and worse ways of asking, but usually almost always I end up wiser for asking and just as often, wiser for having tried to answer.

It's just plain part of the Linux culture, but with numbers like 5,169,549 posts on LQ...

I guess we have Jeremy to thank for a massive and formative contribution to that culture.

And with the advent of the www.*questions.org, he has been spreading that openness.

Thanks Jeremy!

What new features or sections would you like to see?

Open source advances very slowly.... Any one package you watch changes very little at a time.

But it advances on an incredibly broad front.

Even someone like me who uses nothing but open source, cannot even begin to track the tiniest portion of it.

What we need is a better insight into comparative advantages and disavantages of various tools.

For example, let's take the category SQL databases.

Polls don't really help... since while I can rave about the ease of sqlite and the power of postgresql... but I last used mysql 5 years ago and I have never used mariadb.

We need a little more scientific and rational way than a popularity contest or poll to evaluate the value, the merits and demerits of the various tools.

Hearty congratulations and best wishes

Dear Jeremy,

Congratulations to you and all your team members on making this happen.

From the time when I first started using linux till today, I have always turned to this forum for help.

As you think of making improvements to the forum, please keep in mind not to compromise on the strong-holds and foundations of the forum which kept it running and growing.

All the best for all the future endeavors.

pro & con

Congratulations and well done!
Hope that with all the problems you overcame on the way you were still able to enjoy it all.
I'm very grateful for the outflow of good advice I received from your site.

On a lighter note I see that with so many other places on the web, a good proof reader will be a great edition. In the second sentence of the article it should read: 'exceeded', I believe. ;-)
