    Re: What do you use your Ubuntu for!?

    I use Ubuntu for everything I do with a computer. I do dual-boot Windows on my desktop box, strictly for the games that won't run under wine. I, this week, had to reinstall Windows after it hosed itself (grrrr) and reinstalled Steam games; fewer these days, since Steam for Linux came out. I just wish I could convince more people I know of the superiority of GNU/Linux, but when I help a friend who has bought a new computer with Windows 8, I install LibreOffice and GIMP, just to show how good OSS projects can be.

    I drink my Ubuntu black, no sugar.

    I use Ubuntu for programming, web surfing, homework, and everything else.

    I use my *buntu for everything, linux is my only operating system and I wouldn't have it any other way. As for what I use it for specifically, I am looking for work + starting to learn another language + learning html5 and css3 with javascript and finally I create custom android roms for my phone.

    I feel my files are safer from hackers. Most of the open source tools I use seem to run better on Ubuntu.

    For everything but gaming (yet, I hope this year will mark the change in this ).

    Especially happy with Ubuntu on my 400€ laptop for university - that I just recently beefed up with an SSD
