    Have I switched to ubuntu completely?

    Hmm, I haven't used my vista computer in 10 months, and have been using ubuntu always, I don't plan to ever boot vista again, but my dad is forcing me to keep it on there. Does this mean I have switched completely?

    No.

    I don't know why that would be important, expect for "geek status".

    I like Ubuntu, but I use three other OSs at least once a week, who cares?

    I'm pretty sure you could convince your father to let you wipe Vista, telling him you can install it in Virtualbox when you would need it.

    He wants to use it as a backup OS unless i screw up ubuntu, but of course I have yet another ubuntu and all the linux-based recovery software a geek would ever need! And I told him that, still not convinced, I figured it's best not to argue.

    True.

    In the mean while you can shrink the Vista partition to a minimum and claim back your HDD space .

    Get a Vista CD from MS. That way if anything happenes you can re-install to make him happy.

    lol same here. I am dual booting xp, but ever since I've partitioned my hd, I very rarely used xp. I dont even miss it, and I've been using it since grade school

    I still use Windows, but because I'm forced to, and I hate using it. Does that mean I'm switched?
