EE is still a very active site - and probably one of the best IT general
knowledge support sites out there.  I maintain my free membership by
answering a couple of questions each month &  I would recommend to any IT
Pro's/technically savvy users out there that this is a good way to find out
information when you need it in a hurry (I usually find an answer is
forthcoming within an hour or 2, if it's not already in the knowledge

My issue with general forums (particularly the Ubuntu forums due to the
number of users) is that there are loads of competent users giving good
advice....but the noise ratio is dire.  EE tends to have a better quality

It's horses for courses I suppose...but I personally find EE extremely
helpful in times of crisis :)
