    Re: If you dual boot, why did you?

  11. Re: How important do you think gaming is to Ubuntu's success?

    Poll: Re: Anyone switch from K to Gnome? Why?

    I originally used KDE back in the days of Gnome 1 because KDE was vastly superior back then. However, Gnome has caught up rapidly to KDE and I prefer it to KDE 3 or 4.
