Ubuntu is, at this writing, the most popular distro because it is dumbed
down to appeal to new users just now trying to make the jump from
windows (you perhaps?). Debian has done that to some extent but not
nearly that much. Debian users are generally expected to think, research and
attempt to troubleshoot for themselves before turning to forums or mailing 
lists. Ubuntu users expect and get more hand holding.

BTW, do you know the difference between a forum and a mailing list? You
seem to use "forum" as a catchall.

I sure could have but every once in a while I get the urge to try to
assist other posters to educate someone who sorely needs it.
Unfortunately, it seems you're impervious.
