Very cheesy ;) I'll have to take another look. When I first heard of the site,
likely soon after launch, I took a look and didn't like the format. Asking
questions and voting answers up and down was fine, but having a few questions
in big fonts made it look a bit basic and likely not suited to more technical
issues, just end users new to Linux / Ubuntu. I guess I should have dug
further, but my first impression was that I wouldn't find any meaty technical
stuff there so I went elsewhere!
