Windows Users remained stymied today by endless reboots after trying to upgrade their PCs to Windows 7, according to messages posted on Microsoft's support forum. An answer has yet to be found for all users, who began reporting the problem last Friday after watching the upgrade stall two-thirds of the way through the process.

I know you're trolling, but I'll bite anyway.

I have noticed that the best support tends to come from the smaller or more obscure distros out there. Slackware is a great example; Pat Volkerding is perhaps the most charming and helpful BDFL out there. Debian on the other hand, is a mixed bag; it has such a diverse community it's really all down to who you end up asking for help. The same is probably true for Ubuntu; I've rarely had to browse their forums for help as it's a generally easy distro to figure out, but I've gotten a general sense of friendliness from there. Still, I've read accounts of bad attitudes from them...

As I said, I believe you are just trying to start a flame war but to give you the benefit of the doubt, email me at the address in my profile with your questions and I'll do my best to answer them. I've used most of the major distros and have extensive experience in Slackware, Debian and LFS. I'm looking forward to your questions.
