When there's a bug (hardware-compatibility that is worse or better in a newer version - these changes often happen), I search kernel versions. It is amazing how it's not 100% trivial to get Google to find a particular version of a particular software. I can't remember an example right now, but when you combine a common software-name, a version number, AND a bug description/keyword... Sometimes you get that version of a different piece of software, that just happens to mention the piece you're looking for a bug in. If you use quote-marks like "linux 2.6.36" then you exclude a lot of relevant information.
(Wordpress is just some random piece of software that I use. I guess it has the searchability problem that adding "wordpress" to your Google phrase finds you people's blogs, not just info about the software. And on their blog, maybe they were talking about a version of SimCity or something...)
