Is this the official debian forums? I read something about real debain user? I dont see any reference to this term nor to this website for that matter in http://www.debian.org.

For me this is the only Debian forum. I think the term "real debian users" refers to the users of the Debian operating system itself, since you also have debian-based distro's like Ubuntu and Linux Mint. But that's doesn't say that this forum is the only forum who's handling question's about Debian. There are a lot of other Linux sites who are running a forum where people can ask questions about their distro. The only drawback is, is that everybody can ask questions their no matter what distro you have. It's more a mixed up world of all kind of distro's and questions in which yo9u have to find the rigth answer to your problem. On this Debian forum there are only questions/answers/solutions only for the Debian operating system.

There is no "Official" Debian Forum associated with The Debian Project. Now if you do go to Debian for Support you will see some "Official" types of support offered by debian. You will also note at the top of the list "Documentation". It's not there at the top because the list is in alphabetical order. Use it.

Further down the list you will find a link to Other support resources. Following it will you will find related links, where there is yet another list of information on the net that may be of interest to Debian users. Selecting the first on Support web sites will give one a list of some web forums, Debian User Forums is one of them.

Now as far as a "Real Debian User" AMLJ hit the nail on the head :mrgreen: .

Because God forbid a forum does what it was designed to do: display our posts.

I don't get how this thread is still open. With a name like Ubuntutoo and the nature of the original post, how can this be seen as anything other than a troll post. Glad to know the reporting option is working just fine and dandy.

Now you get the reason for my sarcastic reply in the other thread: the massive influx of Ubuntu users coming here trying to a) post how satisfied they are with Ubuntu, b) post help requests on getting Debian to act like Ubuntu or c) post crap like this.
And then they disappear back to the Ubunut forums from whence they came.

A lot of good that does with this type of thread. Were I to snarl at the OP, then the thread would get closed and I would get a warning.
