    Re: How much do you use Ubuntu?

    I have a dual booting machine with Ubuntu & XP.
    Use ubuntu 80% of the time, booting XP to play games and use a dial-up network.

    Re: How much do you use Ubuntu?

    I work (mostly) from home, as a software developer, on my Ubuntu desktop.
    When I have to go back to the mothership I use Ubuntu on a slow old dual-booting laptop. I find it much more responsive than the Windows 2000 partition.
    So I do all my surfing, emailing, documentation on Ubuntu using Thunderbird, OpenOffice, FF, etc. But I do my actual coding on a Windows Terminal Server, which I connect to from Ubuntu using rdesktop.

    I use both Ubuntu (and other distros) quiet a lot but I all so use because I love Paint Shop Pro. I did try the paint programs for Linux but they just don't compare wih PSP

    I've exclusively used Ubuntu at home since it first came out, I was using Mandrake for about six months before that.
    I originally changed from Linux to Windows as I'd built a pc and found that no version except Win2k would even install, and even that died completely every two days requiring a full reinstallation, so I tried Linux out of sheer desperation.
    In my last IT job, before I gave up IT permanently (woohoo!), I was lucky enough to be able to use Ubuntu there too. Any necessary Windows apps were run under Vmware.

    I use Arch on my laptop (because its old and Arch runs well on it), and Ubuntu on everything else. The only time I use XP is for occasional gaming.

    I use it every day. I have drop ms totally. Except for one machine. (media/file server) don't want to reinstall everything since it's only used for media/file sharing.

    Re: How much do you use Ubuntu?

    i switched to linux 3 years ago suse for about 3 months, then gentoo (highly recomended if you want learn linux) but in the last year i'm a bit unsatisfield with gentoo, then i have arch linux a try, nice distro, but after install ubuntu in a friend of mine laptop i decided i found that the easyness and ubuntu package database and package management is the better one.

    actualy i can't stand windoze, i know that there is a lot off nice apps for windows like photoshop cs, foobar, clonedvd, reason, that don't run under wine nor have linux counterparts, but i hate windows so much that prefer live without these apps.

    windows is a beast that nobody can control, even the creators can't.

    @yopnono:

    install linux, nfs and sshfs is much better than smb
