Pretty much the same here. Haven't used Windows in a long time, except at work. Glad to be free from Microsoft. Not a gamer. I like the Linux filesystem better than how Windows does it. Seems like with Linux, the system's mine, I can do what I want with it, but it didn't seem that way with Windows. Also, I think Linux is a lot more fun to mess around with. Like monkeybrain, I don't miss Windows one bit. The only way I an imagine using it at home again is if I had a job that required it.
