    I'm trying PHP, so my code can probably be labelled "bad and insecure"

    I've strictly using Ubuntu for a couple of years since my computer went on strike . I still have XP but cant't get to it. perhaps when the Karmic comes along I'll clean with both distros. But frankly I don't miss windows one bit.

    I switched over two week ago and love it. Feels good work with something that is not costing me a tonne of cash for licencing antiviruses and buying programs. I believe that people will turn away from Microsoft and join in with linux Not all people but a lot. I can not believe how easy it was to load Ubuntu right over XP and worked without a glitch "yet" I am here to stay. If something doesnt work. The forum has the correct answer or yuo can find it fast. I am enjoying Ubuntu.

    I completely swapped over to Linux about 3 years ago and will never go back to windoze. I have to use XP and Vista at work though and it feels like pulling teeth! Vista is the worst computing experience I have ever had and I'm not impressed with windoze 7 as yet.

    I'm currently using Ubuntu 9.04 (I'll upgrade to 9.10 when the Flash issue has been sorted - although I haven't checked recently on that subject) on an E-Systems 4213 Celeron laptop and an AMD dual-core Athlon desktop. Both machines have Gnome, KDE and Xfce desktops which I select at boot depending what mood I'm in, or if I want to use an application that needs a specific desktop.

    The laptop performance gave a monumental increase by installing Linux, it literally boots in seconds as opposed to a lifetime with the previous Vista. The machine was originally shipped with Vista Home Premium and crawled along like a lame tortoise! I can't believe some berk at Dixons/PC World tech dept decided to put such a bloated, unusable OS as Vista on a lowly powered machine!

    I do have a question for anyone out there familier with this model of laptop - is it possible to upgrade the Celeron processor to one with more muscle? I have already upgraded the RAM to 2GB put I was hoping to experiment with 'virtualisation' but the Celeron 530 processor doesn't have the Intel-VT CPU flag. I was hoping a processor upgrade would address this.

    Cheers for any answers.

    Not quite. I have been playing with Linux since Suse 6.0 and only now do I think that it is ready for prime time (in the shape of Ubuntu 9.10). So it has been gradual. I just converted my home file and tv server from XP to Karmic. My office machine and my wife's also are Karmic (and she can be a very impatient technophobe). I have a Karmic mini-ITX PVR where I am experimenting with different apps. There is another PVR which so far is XP but will become Karmic when I have sorted out NFS and NIS. That just leaves my daughter's Vista m/c which she is happy with (MSM and facebook mainly I think). And my laptop, which came with XP and probably will soon be Karmic.

    When I first started, Suse 6.0 was a dog, and Karmic is way, way better (thanks guys). But there are still issues (like Firewire capture or SATA recognition) where there is work to do. And I wish they wouldn't keep changing the way it works (GRUB2 for example) These apart, there are few apps that I have collected along the way for Windows that aren't already in good shape under Ubuntu, allowing me to switch without loss.

    If you are thinking of switching I say go for it!

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Hi Friends,

    I have completed 1 year in linux ( without windows ) and just shifted to ubuntu 9.10 from fedora 11.

    I use xampp, netbeans and firefox, 90% persent of the time.

    and rest goes on to tuning my laptop performance.


    Though i do not hate any OS,
    But I am on the path to nirvana with the help of Linux.

    If you what work with peace, then go for Ubuntu.
