This sounds pretty close to Ubuntuforums to me. I use this frequently
to give support to others and also to get support for myself. I
prefer Ubuntuforums more than IRC. I have found IRC to be very useful
on times I have used it, but I find it pretty cryptic to get it all
started correctly and I do not really understand what is connecting
etc. Now if I feel intimidated by the IRC cryptic clunkiness, I am
sure that real newcomers will be uncomfortable. Forums are seen a lot
in Windows World, and have a familiarity.
I use teamviewer a lot to help remote friends (non commercial) and
although I dislike the proprietary-ness of teamviewer it works well,
and can be installed into a live session.
