There are a number of questions about Linux and applications that run under Linux, that are asked by users that are not using Ubuntu.
Am I wrong to discourage it and remind the users that this is a forum for Ubuntu?
At one time I spent a lot of time trying to help a user resolve an issue with an application that is common to various Linuxes. The problem didn't exist with Ubuntu because it was already configured properly by the developers as part of the install process.
After an hour in extended chat discussion, I started to notice the provided steps weren't working because of differences in default configurations by his OS defaults.
When I learned he wasn't using Ubuntu, I finished with the support to fix the problem. But told him he was in the wrong forum.
He said he uses the AU forum because you get quicker and better support.
Personally, I believe if we focused more on filtering out time spent on threads where they users are not using Ubuntu and the issue isn't with a supported version of Ubuntu, it'd help with the focus of the objective of the AU forum and more attention given to the users of Ubuntu.
I'm asking for the consensus because I don't want to be out of place by reminding users of the forum's objective.
