Install Ubuntu Linux over the Internet with the help of a Mac
Authored by: robg on May 05, '10 05:46:21PM

I have no issues with something being a bad hint: if people tell me, and demand is there, we'll get rid of it -- we've done it before, and we'll do it again. I cannot possibly understand every single hint we run, so I rely on the audience to help. (Well, I'll rely for only a few more days; then it's Craig's issue.)

So for this hint, should we kill it, edit it, or leave it as is?

What I *do* take issue with is people using the comments to debate the merit of why a hint is on the site. That's not what the comments are for, and such feedback belongs in the Feedback forum or via email.

Craig's feeling is that if one other person finds a hint useful, it's worth publishing. In this one, if it were me, I'd just burn an ISO. But it's not me. Someone went to the effort to write it up and submit it.

If folks want to see different hints published, the 'Submit Hint' button works just great. Share away!

Well I guess my pov is colored by having submitted a hint and...

...tumbleweed...

Nowhere to be found anywhere, and still current.

And yet something that tangentially ties Ubuntu to OS X gets published.

Discussing the merits of this hint in this hint's comments is absolutely where it belongs, because this hint is what raised the issue. Taking it to the forum is a great way to get it ignored.
