    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I have switched to Ubuntu since Edgy and completely kicked out M$ a year ago.

    I am very happy with it,i am now enjoying my Pc again.
    I am doing everything i was doing with M$ and even more.

    Still,ubuntu is not perfect cause nothing is perfect in this world.
    Video driver is something that i still have problems for my TVOUT.
    This should be worked more again.This will help people retiring M$ from their Pc.

    For all the rest i have absolutly no complaints.

    Ubuntu rocks.

    Long live to Mark and the devs and this wonderfull community,thanks to all of you who are contributing to this.

    Best regards.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    i haven't used my win in 2 months. i installed win4lin for the few things i need on win i.e. quicken, act, dreamweaver. it works pretty good but is slow for act and can use laptop to do that. am trying to figure out how to chg the mbr from win hd to ubuntu hd so can remove other 2 hd's from system.
    i have found other linux programs for everything else. kmoney looks good to replace quicken but not sure i can run it from my laptop with xp. will soon have only by ubuntu system, i hope. am testing komposer for website work and that will only leave act.

    I'm a software developer working in Java targeting multiple platforms. Haven't used Windows for more than testing in about 4 years now.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I have dabbled with Linux since Knoppix 3.7 came out. I eventually found out about ubuntu when Dapper was available. I wiped XP off of my home machine two years ago. It still sits in a partition on my laptop, but is not be default boot option. For some reason since hardy, it won't "detect" an exernal monitor/projector; though I can get it working. XP has no problem with this and sometimes I just don't feel like goofing around to get it to work in Linux. I know it should just work.

    At any rate, I think I switched becasue
    1. it looks cool b/c it is highly configurable
    2. security
    3. free
    4. speed to boot and run programs

    3 and 4 are perhaps the practical reasons for me.

    I bought an asus eee-box and immediately installed Kubuntu 8.04 with kde 4.1. It boots in under a minute. The xp that came on it after I had to install a virus program and firewall... takes about 3 minutes before the HD activity stops long enough to actually open program.

    I am having Wxp as my primary OS and Ubuntu in my PC. The things that holds me back from being a complete Ubuntu user are :-

    1.MP3 support
    2.Support of Bluetooth modem [Mobile Phone]
    3.MS outlook supports mobile sync of calendar and contacts.

    If the above are rectified I would change to Ubuntu completely.

    I use Ubuntu all the way!

    Installed it last year about this time was sick of it a first and then the power of the terminal caught my attention. The occasional self-challenge was also nice. I now use Ubuntu on three computers and I am constantly recommending it to other people. And I totally recommend that you take Windows off of your computer . . . there are still open-source games, like freedoom and Nexuiz.

    I honestly threw myself into it. I was tired of my XP crashing, so I downloaded Ubuntu Live, tried it out, then said, "Screw it! I'm in!".



    I have no clue what I got myself into.

    I've completely switched over to Ubuntu.

    And I haven't looked back at all.

    I have not switched completely but I am close.The only time I boot into windows is for sins of a solar empire. I have tried and I can't get it to work more the a few minutes in wine. Other then that one game I have switched completely.
