    I'm 31. And like most posters, I use Ubuntu for work and every thing else.

    I am 20 and I use Ubuntu to do 90% of the "normal" day to day activities of a PC. I keep Windows around to play games as I sadly reverted to the joy of games (sad because it wastes my precious free time).

    I am 16 going on 17 (next month) and I basically use Ubuntu for surfing, development, programming, and manging my server.

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

    I am 70yoa, used Ubuntu since 5oct05. It runs my home office and personal machines for 99% of what I do. I have some old apps that still require a M$ desktop. My HP business laptop IS BEING CLEANED OUT of M$ THIS WEEKEND. Just bought an Asus Eee 4g Surf. It will be getting Xubuntu quickly, the native Xandros OS is from another planet after 2 and 1/2 years of Ubuntu.
    I am a commercial construction supervisor and general contractor. A Lenovo machine runs M$ XP Home, M$ Office 2000, along with Open Office amd Fiirefox, I use Picasa for Ubuntu and M$ XP. I use both a film camera and digital camera for business and pleasure.

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

    Im 25 and i started using Ubunttu maybe 4 months ago.. i switched to Ubuntu because i got tired of Microsoft and too take a look at that unknown world (for me) called Linux.
    Of course at first i created a dual-boot with Windows XP (Note: im installed it at work) becuase i wasnt sure if i could make it work so i can do my daily job with it. I'va had the dual boot for about a month... then i realized that i was ready to make the full switch, so i did ....

    It all started as a learning process and it changed the way i work, of course i do use Windows on a VirtualBox (10000000 times faster than a real PC) to run some Windows applications... i know... i could use WINE, but, there are only two things that i use on VB...

    1- Netsupport Manager (remote control application), there's a Linux Version but it happens to mess things up, even though that ITS the only application that claims to be Linux compatible :S

    2- a CRM software that was entirely built on MSAccess database connecting to Oracle (completely stupid, i know, but thats the only thing we have right now....)

    I recently was told about Virtual Box seamless mode, it blew me away... its f******* fantastic, the only thing is that i can have compiz enabled with seamless mode, but thats ok, still runs faster than Windows

    Soooo, that's my short but growing experience with Linux.

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

    I'm 22. I use it as a replacement for Windows (email, web, games, movies, web design, software development).

    I also have a server that runs Ubuntu. It's a web/mail/file server. Basically an anything-I-want server.

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

    I am 58, and live in Melbourne Australia (recently retired from Senior Project Manager role in the ID division of large Australian bank)..
    Three weeks ago built Ubuntu on a dual boot environment with XP as the other OS.
    Hopefully will convert to total Ubuntu when I am able to source XP replacement applications or manage to get Wine to run them.
    The biggest issues I have at the moment are DVD Decrypt / DVD Shrink, and BitTorrent running under Wine (have had a couple of goes to date without success, when time permits will try again). Have also experienced problems with Canon Scanner D1250U2 as no drivers appear to exist.
    Currently use Ubuntu for Internet browsing, email, Open Office applications, and watching documentaries.
