From reading the SO Blog post, it seems the general consensus is that Ask Ubuntu is special since most users want simple, easy answers that don't require hacking something to get it to work.
However what if I wanted an answer that gave the complicated, but better, answer? I'm thinking more of server, command line only type stuff. It seems that this site wouldn't be the best place to ask because I'll get instructions and a simple intro guide, not the in depth answer I was looking for. Should I post it on Unix&Linux or Ask Ubuntu?
And before you say "Try [insert distro] if you want to do some hacking", I like Ubuntu and its derivatives, and won't change that. However Ubuntu can be used for more than just simple stuff.
