Why don't you pull your head out of your backside for a second and think about what was said? You know exactly what about my level of linux usage and knowledge? That's what I thought.Zill wrote:^ +1May I respectfully suggest that this "someone" could be you? From the old, but still very relevant, document "Linux is Not Windows"...nbi wrote:...

The biggest cause of friction tends to be in the online interactions: A "3a" user new to Linux asks for help with a problem he's having. When he doesn't get that help at what he considers an acceptable rate, he starts complaining and demanding more help. Because that's what he's used to doing with paid-for tech support. The problem is that this isn't paid-for support. This is a bunch of volunteers who are willing to help people with problems out of the goodness of their hearts. The new user has no right to demand anything from them, any more than somebody collecting for charity can demand larger donations from contributors.
Simply remember that you haven't paid the developer who wrote the software or the people online who provide the tech support. They don't owe you anything.
And I don't like people putting words in my mouth. I didn't demand anything, if I had such a demand would be directed at a specific person or group. I didn't start this thread, but only added an observation and recommendation after it was clear that I'm not the only one having issues with this. As a distro maintainer I'd want as much feedback as possible and wouldn't take such feedback as a personal disparagement. But fine, I'll stay mum from now on and you folks can cock it up to your heart's content.
As for you limey you can bugger off if you don't like it!
