I understand that
- for Apple questions, I should use the Ask Different community
- for Linux questions, I should use the Unix & Linux community
What about for questions about Microsoft services and products? Given the extent of Microsoft's market share, I'm a bit surprised that there's not an obvious community dedicated to it.
Update: in accordance with F1Krazy's advice...
The specific question I want to ask is,
"Microsoft Community, a.k.a. answers.microsoft.com, is (or was) a community support forum (similar to discussions.apple.com). It has been down for at least the last few days. I have a bunch of bookmarks to pages on answers.microsoft.com, and they're all giving a "We are sorry... The page you requested is not available at this time" error. Maybe Microsoft has replaced it with some newer forum... but if you go to https://support.microsoft.com/en-us , it still contains an "Ask the community" link, which goes to answers.microsoft.com, which gives the aforementioned error.
So my question is, has Microsoft replaced the Microsoft Community with something newer? Or is this just a very extended outage, which seems rather unprecedented for a critical resource belonging to one of the world's largest companies?
Which Stack Exchange site would be the appropriate place to pose this question?
Update 2: Because the question is not related to programming, I went ahead and asked it in the Super User community. Apparently that was the wrong community. The question was closed for being off-topic.
