    Only two reasons not to be fully ubuntized (work & itunes). I've almost solved the work issue, but itunes continues to be the pain.....

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I switched to Linux from Windows Vista just to give it a try. I should say I expected it to be more difficult and less fancy (I'm a girl)
    It works really great for me comparing with Windows: no lags, no sudden updates and the interface is quite user-friendly. And moreover it's free!
    I personally cannot imagine a better OS now. Will continue using it. The only minus for me is that not every program works for it, for example such tools like Midi player freeware do not. A lot of games I used to play are not supported.

    But I still love Ubuntu

    Ah yes, back in the good ol' days you had to edit the X conf file, and choose the correct mouse protocol and port; and decide if you used gpm or not, Its not like nowdays, where everything works perfect by default

    Protip: If you fail at ubuntu, try other distro, or go use what you like. Trolling here won't get you a thing.

    Also, the economic model has nothing do to with it. Free Software is not unpaid, you only pay when you want/need to, eg, to get someone fix things for you... Its free as in freedom, and you are free to charge for it, but can't impose on others what to do with their copy, following the license rules (which allows you to charge for it, or give it away, your problem).

    People working with free software often charge for support/fixes instead of copies, as realistically you could only charge for the first copy anyway (fund the project).

    If you are unmarried then perhaps I have found mom for my Kids...!!

    (Seeing that many things are not going a nicer way, but you still love Ubuntu. I didn't think any girl would think like that)..!!

    There are many many ways to play midi files, my favorite is to install the package fluidsynth (software midi synth) and use audacious to play midis (with a small 3,2M soundfont called Scc1t2.sf2 )

    Some newer games work with wine, but take an initial effort configuring and a good supported (usually nvidia) 3d video board. Older games might work with dosbox or scummvm (which can also use fluidsynth), etc.

    Try to ask for help in the proper areas of the forums or in chat.

    Bingo. No lags, this cannot be understated. My time is important and wasting it sitting infront of a spining icon is soul sucking experience I am loth to participate in...

    Years ago I tried Heron, couldn't get online so it had to go. Tried 10.04 LTS when it first came out, installed, clicked on the web icon and was online straight away, that was all I needed to dump window$.
    Yes I have searched, perhaps I missed the answer but I did search. Thanks.
