    What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    Just curious. What is your age and what do you use Ubuntu for?
    Me? I'm 40, surf the web, e-mail, and gimp. I also like to install and uninstall programs from the repository, trying to brake and fix the system. I find that is the best way to learn.

    I'm 20 years old. I use Ubuntu to surf, check e-mail, type papers, and to do some web design.

    Age: 39 & 3/4's (but still feel 25 so no wise cracks about being old. Im at that sensitive age)
    Using Ubuntu for World domination or web surfing. Depends on my mood

    I actually use Ubuntu for everything that I used to use Windows for. Gaming, surfing, emailing, spreadsheeting (?), web design, coding, accounts, running businesses, project planning, family tree reasearch, a touch of graphic design, databases, home networking, TV viewing, DVR, movies, and poker and lots more besides. Linux (Ubuntu) is no longer a curio, a test bed for us geeks. "It just works"
    Want an alternative to 99% of Windows applications?

    Re: What is your age and what do you use ubuntu for?

    Chronologically, I'm 25, and I use Ubuntu on my main desktop, so it gets used for browsing, email, IRC, torrents, the occasional emulated video game and as my primary media centre. In fact, it gets used for everything I used to do on Windows except for DJing over Shoutcast. I still run a Windows partition on my laptop for that, though, so my desktop can remain clean.

    39 and I use it for surfing, email, news as well as a bit of tinkering and some web design.
    Be very wary of any command with sudo in it. Read this for more information and check this to make sure you do know what you're doing.
