As to me personally, I'd be much more inclined to write a reply to
a user asking "How do I compile a kernel?" than a user asking "Hoe
compileer ik een kernel?", because I know that the time spent on
answering the former question will potentially benefit many more
people than the time spent on answering the latter question.

And I think that finding Dutch people that don't speak English well
is so unlikely (I don't know any, at least) that I wouldn't be inclined
to help people in Dutch.

(I don't know how other people feel about this, YMMV, etc.)
