I've posted questions to the linux users' groups for SuSE and Mandriva during 
my years as a linux desktop user. They are largely composed of posts by my 
fellow amateur enthusiasts, whose knowledge does not go very deep. This 
list's base seems to be IT professionals who are happy to help non-competent 
strangers, and do so clearly and tactfully. (And in some cases, such as with 
the fellow from obsecurity.com, with a five-minute turnaround.) I find this 
remarkable, and much appreciate it. 

Also, the online FreeBSD handbook is a much more useful thing than anything I 
ever paid to get from SuSE or Mandriva. I'm not getting all the GUI tools I 
had with linux, but I have better help and better-organized reference
