How does everyone feel about setting up a general OS X FAQ up for the very common, but not so simple problems in OS X.

Some issues like the ones caused by the Stuffit context menu, missing pref. icons and home folder renaming etc. come up all the time, and the same answers are in every thread, usually by the same person so it makes sense to me.

Anyone else think this is a good idea?

We have some stickies for this, but nothing systematic. Internally, we have been thinking about this for some time now. It's good that users actually want what we think they might want.

I will create a thread in the OS X forum, asking for topics.

Hehe. I actually suggested this to Glenn, not sure if you'd had the idea before. My idea is really to combine what we already have and add stuff as it crops up.
I know you do have some stickies, but i thought having it all in one thread would be better.
