Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?
I'm not a programmer or anything of the like. My history is this. Started with 98SE, but had to reboot when done with real games. Went to 2K and it would do video, (especially video greater than 4GB), and had much fewer problems, until recently. Had xp on a rental from duh-Dell. Ran it in 2K mode becasue it was a PITA to locate things. 6 months ago installed Hardy and it worked well on the old machine, but the Mobo is crapping out. Put it on an AMD64 machine and I have the random locks, shutdowns and reboot plauge! Installed 7.10 and all seems well, but there appears to be some things that aren't there. I'm still trying to figure out what all there is/isn't.
I also tried Mandriva 2009 and Debian Etch live. both the latest stable versions, but neither will load properly. Since I'm not a CLI guy, (Yet. I'll learn when I get the extra time sometime next year!), I don't have time to muddle around trying to figure stuff out, I'll play with 7.10 until 8.10 comes out. Hopefully that will work and be idiot friendly! I like the potential that Ubuntu has. If it could do video editing and real games, then I'ld be willing to dump 2K. But until then...
