    Completely Ubuntu. I'll never go back to Windows. It took me a while to get used to it and to know where to look for answers to quirks on my system but once I found that out, Ubuntu was and is golden. Take THAT Microsoft!

    Running purely Ubuntu on my laptop now; after all the perks and good stuffs Ubuntu can offer/teach you, I stopped using Windows altogether.

    Still cannot be 100% Microsoft-free after upgrading to 11.04

    • Still using MSWord while waiting for Outline View in Open/Libre Office (Bug 3959 Reported: 2002-04-10)
    • Some software I use doesn't run under WINE, so I have VMWare and WinXP.


    ADDING: The "Unity" interface is butt-ugly, gaudy and reminds me of a child's toy computer. Switching to "classic" doesn't get rid of all the ugly.

    I may be switching distros for that reason. I spend a lot of time looking at a computer screen, and it has to be inobtrusive, with a custom color scheme.

    I switched to Linux completely since 2007, starting with Ubuntu 6.10, and never looked back. Before that I tested other Linux distros such as Redhat, Mepis, and Puppy Linux. I just upgraded to Ubuntu 11.04, mostly to check out the Unity interface, but it does not seem to work on my machine, so I just use the classic setting.

    If you're unhappy about Unity, try one of the other distros: Kubuntu, Xubuntu, and Lubuntu don't use Unity. Or alternatively, you can turn Unity off and use the regular Gnome interface in regular Ubuntu if you like.

    DragonFly BSD? That is impressive nerddom. Have you considered OpenBSD? We use it at work for its security (as well as its freedom). I dunno d*ck about it, almost, but I'm working on it.
