When you become knowledgeable, start answering questions yourself. I
rarely have anything to contribute, but when I do I'll answer a question.
As to why, there's an element of long-term self-interest: the more
successes there are, the larger the user base becomes, the more experts
develop. As a FreeBSD user, it's in my interest to have a large installed
base and a large and robust user community since this will (I think and
hope) ultimately mean more awareness from hardware makers and thus a
continued supply of hardware I can use. Well, applications software too.
And if you become an expert, maybe you can answer *my* question next time
