Which StackExchange site if preferred when asking questions specific to Apple hardware, but concerning running Ubuntu?

Specific example, would be "how to get hardware component X of MacBook Pro running in Ubuntu XX.YY?".

If the question is about Apple hardware, I would ask the question on Ask Different.
If the question is about the Ubuntu driver to use for specific hardware, then I would ask the question on Ask Ubuntu, or Super User if the correct answer could be given from who has experience with both Mac OS software and Ubuntu software.

It would really depend on your question—if it's more about Ubuntu, and you're just incidentally running it on Apple hardware, I would go with Ask Ubuntu. On the other hand, if it's more a hardware problem, Ask Different might be the better place, but I would also seriously consider Super User. Without more information, I'm afraid it's really hard to say exactly which site would consider it on topic.

  • OP probably specifically doesn't want SU. meta.superuser.com/questions/2464/… – random May 2 '11 at 0:41
  • @random: actually I wouldn't consider SU, because I don't see how Windows users are going to be useful in answering Ubuntu/Mac related questions. – vartec May 2 '11 at 0:52

    @vartec Super User isn't just for Windows—it's for all computer hardware and software questions. – waiwai933 May 2 '11 at 0:53
  • @vartec Super User is not only for Windows users. A question about software that is not a developer tool is on-topic on Super User. As there is also Ask Different, I would probably ask on SU a question that is about an integration issue between Windows and Mac OS X. – kiamlaluno May 2 '11 at 3:49
