Meta Stack Exchange is where users like you discuss bugs, features, and support issues that affect the software powering all 158 Stack Exchange communities.

What is meta?
Here's how it works:
  1. Any Stack Exchange user can ask a question
  2. The community provides support, votes on ideas, and reports bugs
  3. Your voice helps shape the way Stack Exchange operates

Should I use the Math SE beta or Stack Overflow? Or if Stack Exchange doesn't have an appropriate site, where should I go? I like Stack Exchange, though.

There is now a dedicated Mathematica Q&A site. Any questions about Mathematica should be directed there.

And there's also, for Computational Science. Depending on the nature of your question, that might be the right place. ("For scientists doing science by heavy computations", the FAQ currently says.)

If it's about programming it then go to Stack Overflow, if it's about using it then go to either Super User or the Math Stackexchange.

Using Mathematica is programming on it's language. But I searched both sites for questions about Mathematica, and search didn't answer on a question, where I better should go. – Nakilon Sep 25 '10 at 23:58
@Nakilon, To be honest there may not be enough of a population on these sites to help you, but I'd try first. – Lance Roberts Sep 26 '10 at 0:37

Assuming your aim is to get a useful answer I would ask about Mathematica on Math SE, as that is the site that is most likely to have users of Mathematica on it. I would then try Math Overflow, as there must be some users of Mathematica on Math Overflow.

I tend to think of each site as a community defined by a common interest, then I think of the community that is most likely to have members that can answer my questions.

Even a problem installing Mathematica, provided the problem is with Mathematica rather than the OS you are much more likely to find someone that has solved the problem before on Math SE then super User
