    Is it just me, or does everything work better in Linux?

    I just finally got over my windoze addiction. And, I am find that everything seem to work better in linux from firefox to to libreoffice.
    Discounting that the is still a lack for 64 OSes.

    Is it just me?

    Life is an extraordinarily long concatenation of luck and coincidence.

    It's just you. Also, have you not heard the news? Win7 and OSX are both 64-bit.

    I have only used about 6 or 7 os's, rather than 64...

    The above post definitely does not contain any sarcasm at all.

    Just you. Webcam support in flash is crap to non-existent, and for me my webcam works more poorly.

    It's just you, but that doesn't keep me from using Linux as my primary OS. There are other returns that are more worthwhile to me than all my accessories working perfectly. The speed and low resource usage is key for me.

    It's good to know that it's just me. My Kindergarden teacher use to tell me that all the time.

    Excluding 64 bit applications, flash, everything on my system works flawlessly.

    It's always good to do some research to find out which parts are supported in linux.

    I am using windows ultimate 64 and it's just not as sweet.
    Right now I chugging along with 4 processors and 6 gigs of ram and it still can't beat linux.

    Good job Ubuntu and linux planet guys!!!

    Never mind whether it's just you or not. If it's doing what you want it to, enjoy.

    Ubuntu does most of what I want. I have a Windows installation, but it doesn't get much use.
    Please, people, remember to BACKUP before you install that new system. Same if you're upgrading.

    I find my system works so much better under Linux.

    For one, my HP 1660 printer drivers dont work under 64bit windows anything and it works perfectly on my 64bit linux system.
    Also RAID is easier to setup, NV drivers work great. Everything works great..

    I go no complaints. Of course when I buy hardware, I make sure its Linux friendly..

    64 bit applications work fine, i don't see what you mean. For flash, you should just use sevenmachines's PPA...

    I dont get what everyone is talking about in regards to Flash issues.
    I just download the 64bit plugins tarbal from Adobes website and drop the file into my plugins directory manually and it all works just fine.
