LinuxQuestions is Brilliant !

I Just wanted to share with you all that I think LinuxQuestions is a brilliant forum.

Most of the time I surf the forum, only reading the questions and answers, just learning from other peoples problems ;-)

The threads I started myself are only few, I did not have that many problems, but I pick up plenty of clever tricks and expand the small knowledge I have.

The result is a super tweaked linux box that runs smooth and reliable.

Thanks to all the thread-posters, the ones that replied on those threads and the moderators !

I couldn't agree more, the quality of people on this site is astonishing. Well posed questions, with thorough explanation of problems, and amazingly patient and usefull responses in no time whatsoever. It's been a pleasure learning from this site!

Kudos to everyone involved!

Thumbs down

Are you talking about the same forum and operating system? I gave up trying linux after the first response on this forum on how to create a boot disk. At least it made Windows appealing.

Thanks for the feedback guys, the work that Jeremy puts into this site makes it just great. rtuckwell, the advice you got was fine, i don't see how you could relate an antique laptop to the quality of this site.

Another dumb comment to demonstrate my point.

Old laptop - no issue.
How to create a boot disk - no help.

that's just daft you still have a number of well meaning posts you have not replied to after more information, people will still be glad to help you if you ask there again. if you truly think what i said was a "dumb" comment then you've only got yourself to blame for getting nowhere i'd say.

<dumb_comment>But that's what you get for living under Gatwicks flight path i guess... </dumb_comment>

There are plenty of threads on this site that tell you how to make a bootdisk.
You'd better do a good search first, before complaining.
(ps: VectorLinux might be easier on you than Slackware, Vector is based on slack but easier to install + suited for computers with little MB and Mhz. , have a look on )

Here here! Ive been using Linux for nearly a year now and even im still a bit of a newbie. Ive learned a lot from just browsing through the forums searching for anwsers!
To be honest, i probably wouldnt be using Linux right now if it werent for LQ!

Im not sure how long LQ has been going, but i hope its around to stay for quite a while

Hmm... Someone once said to me a loong time ago about Linux:
"You either love it, or you hate it, there's no other choices; For a "computer-freak" it's heaven, and for an "office-rat" it's hell...
Well, I'm not sure was he right, but on this case, I must be a C-freak...

rtuckwell might just not have asked the question in a way that made enough sense, this is NOT being critical of how he/she? asks questions, but there are one hell of a lot of "well clued up" people hereabouts, and more than once, I've posted a question and had to redefine it, as it either didn't get an answer, or the answers that it did get, made little or no sense.

Though as far as Chris's idea of being driven mad by Gatwick is concerned, nah, more likely sent scatty by the continual drone of the M25 (Crawley's the place for the silence freaks and aeroplanes!) whereas me, I just bask in the reflected enjoyment of linuxquestions with the sound of waves on pebbles (about 40 miles south of Reigate!) - as for Bruno (onurb), he's the lucky one, just pop into centraal and visit one of those amazing chilling "cafe's" round the back of Dam Straat - ooooooooohhhhhhhh yeah man chill chill chill!!!!!!!!!

so far from what i have been through here, i would have to say this is one of the most helpful places i have ever been. if you don't understand the first time and need a little more help, they don't tell your you're stupid, they just give you a little more help. if it wasn't for some of the people here, i would probably be stuck wondering how to install the nvidia drivers still. this site is amazing for help. thank you everyone that helped.

This is the most helpful Linux site I've been to by far. I've only run into one person here (who shall remain nameless) who's got a bit of the ol' RTFM/"what a stupid question" attitude in his/her responses, and that's not too bad considering how many members there are here. It is for this reason that I started coming here regularly. The help that I received and the really great attitude of the mods and the members is what's made me stay. Because of how well I was helped I now stick around and try to help others out as well. I think I've learned as much by helping others as I have by asking questions. The responses here are priceless.

Thanks Jeremy and staff.
