Sometimes I come across a question in Ask Ubuntu about how to do something with a third party software application, without any reference to the OS the OP is using. For example:
Way to share Virtual Machine image for independent use for multiple users (on different host machines)?
I have asked for clarification but so far there is no response from the OP.
My question is:
In such cases should we assume that the OP is using a supported (not EOL) official flavor of Ubuntu and leave leave it as on-topic? This is the "innocent until proven guilty" approach.
Or should we flag these as off-topic, assuming the OP does not clarify which OS they are using?
I have seen a couple of questions in Meta on similar issues:
Asking questions about third-party applications running on Ubuntu
Was 142386 closed because it's about FreeBSD, or because it might not also be about Ubuntu?
But I don't think they address my question directly.
Thanks for the help
