I agree that documentation is lacking a lot with Linux but it is very 
hard for them to keep up.  Linux seems to change very quickly unlike M$ 
who just sells the same "stuff" for several to many years.  It just 
seems to me that more people want to program than document things.

Care to volunteer?  That may help, especially if you can get a lot of 
people to come with you.
