Isn't GNU/Linux in general about getting accustomed to a new way of

I think we need forums specific to 'use of Ubuntu in India'.

I have nothing against forums in general. What I don't understand is
why searching a information source hosted at a server (forums) is
preferred over searching the contents of your inbox (mailing list).

Just my Rs. 0.2 :-D

Passion - Some people climb mountains - others write Free software.
Don't ask why - the reason is the same.
