Q: Why are there so many helpful people?

avisitoritseemsSounds odd, I know. I think information should be free, but I am also wondering about the self-sustainability of those who offer up their time for free, for SE sites and open source developing. Is the goal attained to spread knowledge, finish a project, etc.?

I need one reopen vote from a reviewer to reopen this question: How to compile a C program that uses math.h?. On many other OSs, like Windows, it is unnecessary to pass a special linker option to use the math library in C programs. Even on some Unix-like operating systems the standard C library implementation doesn't require this. This isn't a general C programming question, it's a question about how to use gcc on Ubuntu.
This is a problem many users face when they switch to GNU/Linux systems like Ubuntu. iinm this question was closed as off topic because it was regarded by its reviewers as a C programming question, not about Ubuntu.
