I’ve been sitting on an idea for a while now and I finally had some time to implement it.  After going through the piles of comments that have been left on this blog I thought I would implement an ubuntu tutorials community forum around the site and its tutorials.  I’ve noticed that many of the comments threads have evolved to something very similar to a community forum, so I thought I’d help facilitate that.

The forum is still very young and its still very much a work in progress so it will rely on you to get going.  I still very much believe in the “release early, release often” model so, even though it isn’t finished, please dive in.

I will be attempting to migrate some of the major posts and discussion topics into the forum so that there is a bit more of a starting point.  I welcome any other suggestions.  You can leave them here.

    Wondering why you are creating “yet another” forum, when all that is on that site has a place on ubuntuforums.org ?

    ubuntuforums.org is bloated. I like the idea of a forum targeting talks related to tutorials on this site and maybe requests for future tutorials.

    Not just like that one, but like the entire ubuntuforums.org site. As far as I can tell, this new forum is just trying to be a 100% ontopic “help with ubuntu” forum. I don’t see why we couldn’t put this energy to better use on ubuntuforums.org

    That tips & tricks forum has been pruned quite heavily recently to help keep it up to date, and i wouldn’t say it is too bloated. If you think something should be done about a thread then just report it and say what.

    P.s. your website/OpenID field is broken.

    OK, What Now? My problem is I am old and don’t remember like I used to.
    I have downloaded the iso & checked & burned the above cd and have booted it several times to my XP box, but have not yet installed it on the 40gb hard drive(non sata). I am new to Linux and Ubuntu. I’m an ex Windows only user, but used to be ok using dos5.0 & 6.1, some 17 years ago. Then win 3.1 and on up…
    I have read and read but when I boot up from cd I don’t know if I should open a terminal or a kde, so I just open the Konquor browswer and browse the forms for info & tutorials

    Question 1, How to find & open a doc or wordpad so I can copy n paste what I have done and learned and to be able to post the replies of your suggested commands(as I see this requested in most forums). and how do I label and file the doc. Will it have an extension .doc .txt – so I can find it?

    Question 2, I read so much on the “password” I am confused and crosseyed. I just hit enter without entering anything in the box, but I suspect that will change once I have installed it.

    I know about not being a root user and to use the su or sudo command.
    Why is there a spaces in the commands. ls /users
    What is srv0 ?
    What is Initramfs I get it when I boot up.
