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.
