    How many people here can't even imagine going back to windows?

    i fix windows all the time, and know all about it, but i myself can not even pretend to like windows anymore. i am so at home using linux, that i'm pissed i didn't discover it sooner. when i think computers, i think in linux terms, not windows. those days are gone.

    and please, don't bash anything. i just want some input from people that feel the same way.

    I wouldn't say that I despise Windows, but it does feel very odd and somewhat inconvienent when I use it. I miss my favorite CLI apps

    Go back to Windows? I keep Windows lurking around for the convenience of a couple of applications with features I like that I haven't had the patience to find Ubuntu-friendly equivalents for. Other than that, Ubuntu rocks!

    as a computer geek, i am completely, and totally entrenched in the ways of linux. i can't go back. it doesn't make sense to me.

    and believe it or not, cards fan, i do appreciate a good minimalist distro now and then. i have even done a few command line installs. i'm hip.

    Bearable... but I tried running Windows XP i virtualbox again just now, and I felt like a foreigner... with only one "panel" at the bottom...

    Me too. Though when I first started using Linux I never would have dreamed that I would get entrenched in it.

    I feel much more comfortable in Linux than Windows.

    I'm not going back.

    For 98% of all computers in my country run on windows, one can't help but use it in the office, at school or in the internet cafe. My brother-in-law's computer as well as my father-in-law's run in windows. Luckily, my wife compromised with my preference in using GNU/Linux. She's also learning it.

    Worst of all, I teach and tutor computer softwares usage and manipulation which are purely windows, such as ADOBE Photoshop, PageMaker, MS Office Suite. I can't check my students' activity output in my PC at home (except MSOffice and Photoshop which can run in OpenOffice and GIMP respectively). Lately, I was able to attend a training-seminar on AutoCad2009 and I could only guess what command I use for QCad - my training was quite useless (although there is an online guide for QCad). Nonetheless I will never revert my OS now to Windows again.

    The best thing that happened to me is I learned to TYPE faster (by learning to use the terminal - whew!) and no more worries of malicious applications that might jeopardize my PC.
