    I don't know about that. I've gotten several to at least consider it by waving the "virus-free" flag in front of their panic-stricken faces.

    On topic:

    I can proudly say that my family has been completely Microsoft-free for nearly a year. Mine and my sister's laptops both run Xubuntu 11.10, my dad's desktop runs a custom Debian Squeeze base, and my girlfriend's boots Mint LXDE 12. I first used KNOPPIX to backup data from a dying Windows partition, then used it to bypass Windows XP's fidgety wireless drivers to access facebook. It took a brand-new Vista install getting a virus to push me over the edge and replace it with Ubuntu 10.04. After realizing that everything I could do in Windows I could do in Linux, but better, I fell in love and never looked back.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    On my Desktop I have Windows XP only, I had too many problems with hardware installation such as screen resolution, TV card, keyboard. Last installation of Ubuntu failed, there is no Grub to choose a OS, so I gave up there.

    Laptop:
    I still have a windows partition with Windows XP.
    The reason are applications I have not succeded in making work in Ubuntu: Voipbuster, (I do not want to use wine), others I have not found an equally good substitute: Photoshop (I use Gimp, Xara and SK1), Dreamweaver (I use KompoZer), Foxit PDF Editor (I use PDF editor but I cannot insert images with it), Flash, Autocad.
    Since I only need those (substitutes do most of what I want - perhaps I do not know how to use them yet), I spend months without booting into windows.

    But I am hoping one day to switch completely to ubuntu.

    Regards,

    Retired, I switched 3 years ago after yanking the yoke of my company forced-fed Windows.

    I haven't booted Windows in a long time on my computers. My company provides Windows computers at work and I use a Citrix client when home, if needed, to have that company forced Windows use satisfied. For my personal use, I removed Windows 7 from my computer and have only Ubuntu installed. I don't really want that virus trap on my computer. My 7 yr old and my 11 yr old both use Linux, as does my wife. All of us hate the thought of booting into Windows.

    I still keep a small partition with windows 7, for walking my family thru procedures over the phone. I haven't used for myself in nearly 2 years.

    I'm 58. I like change. Switched to Ubuntu 5 years ago and haven't looked back.
    What I don't like are blanket opinions with no basis.

    Ditto that. 50+ and switched 99% to Ubuntu a year ago -- but I worked in Unix R&D Labs in Silicon Valley for many years (though maybe he was referring to OLD people :-)
    The difference between theory and reality is that, in theory, there should be no difference but, in reality, there always is.

    "Remastersys" is best option for this. Search & install it. It makes iso image of your current os with all your settings & softwares. But i don't know if it work for 11.10 i am lucid linux user. It is perfectly working for me.

    ( Please ask questions in new thread.)
