    Those that are concerned about gaming, it is getting better.

    But I've got to keep it around for games and Rosetta Stone, mainly. (I can't get my mic to work!)

    I think it's safe to say that most of us has something that binds us to Windows. I wish there was more support for mainstream retail applications
    I don't really have anything that particularly binds me to Windows any more, other than a quick go on PES, or if I need to rip one of my DVD's that Linux can't seem to handle for one reason or another. Other than those basic things, I don't really depend on it, and I still use Linux 99.9% of the time.

    Used to be I kept Windows around to play games, but since I no longer game as much as I used to, I sold my Windows machine this past week.

    I now have two laptops, both running Ubuntu, and one Android phone. Assuming Android counts as Linux, I am now exclusively a Linux user.

    It does, since it's Linux based.

    I know, but some consider it a Linux fork rather than a true Linux implementation.

    Hi, BigSilly.

    I don't know what a PES is, but I find ripping my DVD's easier under Linux than Windows... or at least just as easy.

    There are a number of applications you can use. One of the simplest is DVDRip.

    Installing it and running it is as simple as:

    DVDRip (from Ubuntu's Dash)... it'll probably prompt you to click on install which is a simple button that automatically comes up.

    You'll have to run a script for the encription:

    Code:
    $ sudo apt-get install libdvdread4 debhelper fakeroot
    $ find /usr/share/doc -name 'install-css.sh' -type f | xargs sudo sh
    From there just run the program and follow the GUI and you'll have your DVD copy.

    Hi. PES is Pro Evolution Soccer, the best footie game there is. Sadly it doesn't work so well on WINE. And I know how to handle my DVD collection just fine thanks. It's just that occasionally I might come across one of my discs that won't rip in Linux, but will in Windows. Dunno why but there it is.

    Skype is the one thing keeping me from a full switch. I use Skype for hours at a time, in Linux, it crashes, right now I have a dedicated Win 7 PC that I use for skype, so I can still use Ubuntu as my main machine. I also have a slight addiction to onenote that I'm trying to break.

    I am NOT completely switched to Linux because of Games! I love to play games in my spare times...
    But beside gaming, I do all my task in Ubuntu.. Sorry but Wine doesn't help me to play those games in Ubuntu.
