best on-line forum to get Mac tech questions answered...



the first hurdle is getting a response. the second one is getting a correct response. The third hurdle: getting questions answered quickly.



I've been a partisan of XLR8YOURMAC.com for years. Don't know why, maybe MacFixit was too intimidating (too many choices) and I only use AI for speculation. I'm trying to broaden my horizons, hence the questions.



I wouldn't necessarily vote for XLR8YOURMAC.com for quick responses, but they're usually accurate. (If you can catch someone's interest.)



I suspect the people on Ars Technica are the most tech savvy, again, will they answer your stupid OS X navigation question?

    actually, you should check out the genius bar of this forum and perhaps the same forum on forums.applenova.com... Response is generally quick and accurate...

    I just finished a rather lengthy tech support question that started in a forum like this and moved to AIM.



    I should be doing finals right now though...

    Damn this procrastination!

    Take a look at this site , this is an amazing place,

    people there are pretty helpful, not that

    picky as at ARS, and not that saucy as

    at AI, if you know what i mean.

    I have that particular hunch, that you did not get my point, did you?

    There's always Mac NN which is good, just due to sheer size, even if it's overly prone to bickering.



    osXhints is great for seriously geeky stuff.



    & I'll pimp a new startup that so far has the best S/N ratio of any of them.
