Where do questions along the lines of "how do I get my scanner (model number here) to work over the network with the latest OS X ?" (and similar questions) go?

(Obviously, they don't go on Stack Overflow.)

Is there a master list somewhere?


There is a master list.

And the correct site could well be Ask Different - as they say:

Ask Different is for Apple enthusiasts and power users. If you have a question about ...

  • Apple hardware
  • Apple software
  • other Apple products or services
  • third-party hardware and software for Apple products

and it is not about ...

  • Apple Developer Programs or iTunes Connect (including iAd and the iBookstore)
  • programming, with the exception of AppleScript and Automator
  • installing or using Apple operating systems on non-Apple hardware
  • a shopping or buying recommendation for hardware
  • pre-release or beta software
  • obtaining or using pirated software or media

... then you're in the right place to ask your question!

    I still don't like the overlap between Super User and the above specific site...

  • @Arjan Ash a bash question - it is on topic on SO, SuperUser, Unix & Linux and AskDifferent. If you are Ubuntu replace Ask Different by Ubuntu There is not one correct place for all questions sometimes there are several sites.

From the FAQ:
