Today’s Question & Answer session comes to us courtesy of SuperUser—a subdivision of Stack Exchange, a community-driven grouping of Q&A web sites.

It's such a let-down. I was hoping it would have a really catchy name with some sort of weird nerd spin, like most everything else in Linux. Perhaps we should come up with a better name for it.

Yeah, let's call it supercalifragilisticexpialidocious instead

Why does every single one of the questions at the Question and Answer section come from somewhere in Stack Exchange?

Because we are republishing the most interesting stuff we find on StackExchange - mostly SuperUser. They are creative commons licensed, so we can republish with a link back.
Personally I think it's a great way for us to highlight the interesting stuff they have, and I'm guessing they don't mind.

Well, we can also, say, host a question ourselves, can't we? Suppose, you ask the forum members to ask a question every, say, Tuesday. Then on Wednesday, you choose the best question and answer it.

Can't call it a C prompt all the time. As mentioned in the answer, one can be on drive A or drive D. It was properly called a DOS prompt, and should still be called that, because even in Windows you can get to the command line only in a DOS window. Or else it is called a command prompt. But I can't agree with C prompt.
