The concept is right, the marketing did not occur.
Having a "LinuxExchange" section wouldn't fit into the hierarchy of LQ and wouldn't make much sense as the purpose and paradigm of the sites require vastly different approaches and software; LQ is a forum and is therefore conversational, while LE is a Q&A site (modeled after StackExchange) and is therefore very much not conversational.

Thanks again for the feedback. LinuxExchange has been archived. Because it's important to us that all content generated by our members remain available in perpetuity, we've made the archive public and will continue to host it. Note that some content such as user pages were generated dynamically which will result in error pages in the archive. All Q&A content, however, works as expected.

Also – I turned my back on StackExchange in all of its various flavors within a few weeks of having attempted to participate in it. Whereas I've been with LQ for twelve years so you guys must be doing something right.

LQ is a place where I continue to find that I can: (a) find solid technical answers to oddball technical questions; and (b) discuss world politics, faith and religion. Without worrying about downvotes and other such un-social things. I frankly in all these years have never explored any of your other offerings.

And, while I'm here, I would also like to give a "shout out" to your moderators, who tirelessly work every day to keep things civil, and who quietly succeed. I myself don't have the patience nor the temperament to play that role: my own solitary attempt to run a forum lasted about a week. But I recognize and appreciate the effects of those who do, and who do it well. Of which you have quite a few. The end-result of all of your combined efforts is what I'm looking for and have found here: "a very high quality topical forum web site." @>-+---
