This is a not-so-necessary discussion, of course suggesting alternatives is good for community. This discusses the philosophy of questions.
Suppose a question like "Can I foo?". And the answer to that is "No."
But, there's an alternative, "You can bar."
Seeing that the OP "asked a question," and we should answer that question, the right answer is No. Giving a suggestion, thus, should be beyond the scope of AskUbuntu. So, should I manually, forcefully, try to suggest possible alternatives in questions like these? If that's true, then we might need to change the description of this website.
