Wow .. I didn't know that ubuntuforums was part of Canonical.

First, this is 'personal', and even as an Administrator, I'll defer to any other Administrator who feels that this should not be posted here, and feels it necessary to remove it.
I posted the following question on Ubuntuforums to coffecat, on of their Forum Administrators:
I'd like to inquire why there is no prominent notice about Canonical's Ubuntu Edge campaign on Ubunt
I do have restricted extras installed.
I tried another DVD drive
I will have to boot windows and see if there is a hardware issue.
