Mint questions are on-topic for both Unix and Linux and Super User. As for a Mint-specific (or any distro-specific site other than Ubuntu) web site, this subject has been discussed extensively (e.g. here) and the current consensus is that Ask Ubuntu is a very specific case.

  • That discussion is gone... : (

    I argue the point: Ubuntu is no more specific than any other Linux distribution, so it could have been merged with U&L. Yet, due to strong votes against the merger, Ask Ubuntu still exists. If we have sites for specific Linux distributions, despite them being a possible duplicate of U&L, then it makes no sense for Linux Mint to not have a site on SE, especially with so many people using it.

  • And elementaryOS I guess.. Very special Dec 10, 2015 at 19:26
  • Ubuntu questions are also "on-topic for both Unix and Linux and Super User" Dec 10, 2015 at 19:27
  • Linux Mint specific questions are off-topic in Ask Ubuntu.

  • Why is ubuntu special? I also argue for distro specific sites. As each distro has its own experts. I vote for SUSE.

If elementaryOS was able to get its own community, will Linux Mint also be able to receive one?

  • Quite possibly, but it will take a LOT of effort to show that it can be separated from U&L.

  • @BorWal What makes it different from Ubuntu and elementaryOS? IMHO Unix and Linux is more for hardcore Linux stuff. e.g. source-based distros and kernel hacking. Dec 10, 2015 at 19:28
  • @BorWal Moreover, I could imagine a lot of questions related to Cinnamon and other projects which are very Linux Mint specific.
