At the moment, I am not loving it, mostly because I am a hardcore Photoshop User, and can't get it too run (even using wine), nor can I get 2.7.3 of Gimp Installed. If I could fix these issues I would love it though! Super fast in my opnion - compared to Windows anyway.
    You can virtualbox Windows as Linux host and use Photoshop in there.

    I have 11.04 installed on the laptop I bought in 2006, which originally came with Windows XP. I don't have the resources to run Unity (tragic loss that), but otherwise Gnome 2 fallback worked just fine, and boots in 1/10th the time it took for Windows.

    I know exactly what you mean. Did you make the mistake of installing SP1 too? Even though I "needed" Windows for AutoCAD to run properly, I couldn't let a glitch that severe simply slide. Windows had to go.

    P.S. Are you installing Gimp 2.7.3 from ppa?

    I've been Linux only--mostly Kubuntu and Mepis--since autumn 2007 but have tried other distros as well. On that fateful evening, ran the Verizon security suite for Windows and after the required reboot, XP crashed, blue screen of death and have never reinstalled Windows.

    I use Ubuntu and Xubuntu (for my slow old computer). Puppy is nice to grab files from a trashed windows system. I don't play games. I make music, and Ubuntu offers what I need for thousands of dollars less, plus you can do all the normal everyday stuff, and read windows documents people send you, or powerpoint presentations. The only downside is you have to know what your doing, but you can completely edit everything imaginable if you do know what you are doing, very open and free. And I like freedom!

    Love this OS! Natty now, had some issues with Video Card upgrade, solved. Use this computer as entertainment center. Use Windows at work. Used Snow Leopard on this computer. Ubuntu works for my needs

    I find laptop support to be pretty good actually. But anyway, I keep windows around for the once or twice a year I need to test software for a customer. But other than that, using windows is never a consideration.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Started using Linux in 2000 (Red Hat Guinness & Slackware 7.1 I guess), switched fully to Linux when Fedora / Red Hat merged in 2003 and was also using SuSE or whatever variant existed then (I think that's right because I stopped using it when it wasn't SuSE anymore). Switched to Debian and Debian-based distributions in 2005. Didn't start using Ubuntu regularly until very recently.

    I repaired Macs in high school through college (2005-2010 or so) so you'll just have to forgive that. I still never bought one.
