    I first started tinkering around with Ubuntu about a year ago. After a few month hiatus, I was back at it again. And just this past weekend I ended up making the switch entirely and deleting windows from my computer.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I just switched over to Ubuntu exclusively this weekend. Started out with a broken laptop I fixed and got to keep. Installed 8.04 on it and liked it alot, so I dual booted it on my main box. Messed around with it, liked it even more and figured the best way to learn at a faster pace was to remove the Windows "safety net." Only drawback I have is owning a zune and playing a few games that I already have running great with WINE. The zune situation is my next mission. I don't want to get rid of it because, believe it or not, I actually like it. Some research and patience will decide its fate.

    I'm a Linux-only man mostly, though I dual-boot with a stripped XP "just-in-case". But I always boot into my heavily-customised Ubuntu/Mint combo, so I'm pretty safe in saying I've made the switch.

    Okay, I feel like a bad person but I did not completely switch until I was finally able to play Guild Wars on wine with no hitches.

    The funny part it that now I don't even play GW anymore really.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Guys, I really want to change and use UBUNTU clompletely without windows xp. But I have a little problem and perhaps, there is some there to help me. Here are the specs of my laptop:

    Laptop Model: Acer Aspire 4330-592G32Mn
    (http://www.acer.com.ph/notebook.php?pkey=123)

    Processor Type: Intel Celeron M 575 (2.0GHz, 1MB, 667FSB)

    Chipset: Mobile Intel® GL40 Express Chipset
    Memory: 1GB DDR2 RAM

    Video Type: Intel® Graphics Media Accelerator 4500M with up to 1759 MB of Intel DVMT 5.0 (64 MB of Dedicated Memory, up to 1695 MB of Shared Memory )

    56K Modem and Gigabit LAN
    Wireless LAN Built in Wireless LAN (802.11a/b/g/Draft-N) Wireless (Atheros AR5B91 Wireless Network Adapter)

    Card Reader: Built in 5 in 1 Card Reader
    Built-in Camera: Acer CrystalEye Webcam

    Here are my problems that I really cannot solve why:
    1. If I play a movie or a music with the use of visualization, my laptop FREEZES including the DVD player and all programs running, but except the mouse.
    2. My wireless LAN does not function.
    3. Mic does not function.

    Please, anybody can help me how to update or install drivers for my laptop? If all these things functions, I will completely switch to UBUNTU... Why not?

    please help!!!

    Thanks in advance

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Since February I have completely switched to Linux and never want to go back to Window$. I use Ubuntu (now 8.10). I use OpenOffice as a replacement for MS Office. Most Windows only games are playable thanks to Wine.

    In the past I experimented a lot with the first versions of RedHat Linux but those versions were too complex for most daily tasks. Nowadays Ubuntu (and other Linux versions) are much more userfriendly.

    Linux isn't perfect but I certainly don't regret my decision: no more viruses, a stable system (no more infamous "blue" Windows screens), free software, ...
