My guess is that a large majority of Linux users are solo and don't have
a sysadm to talk to (I'd love to know real figures, though). In my last
job I was the unofficial sysadm for Linux because I was the only person
with a high enough profile using it for other users to notice me in an
ocean of corporate Windows.

Most neophytes probably don't know what "here" (mailing list) exists.
They might find Ask Ubuntu. I'd say most of them Google until they find
a page that describes a problem matching their error message. More
experienced users pick it up as they go along and become adepts :-)
