Quote "I beg to differ. Thie biggest weakness isn't "lack of support" it's willingness. Go to a Linux forum post a question about something simple and get called a "noob" and flamed by Linux zealots. "

If you ask a simple question the chances are there is a FAQ that exists to answer it...

I have found however that sites like linuxquestions.org cater for 'noobs' very well with specific forums to answer simple questions.

The same can be said for some quality MS windows help sites too
