I keep windows for printing. Ubuntu printing drivers are unreliable. That's all.
I still have windows 7, for games mainly, crysis and suchlike, though most of my old games don't work on new windows anyway, so will try vm versions one day; most of my machines are linux now, got wife on jolicloud , daughter on ubuntu 12.04, son on ubuntu and windows for games. they aren't really literate, just users, using browsers, email, skype mostly. I use ubuntu, fedora, freebsd (for freenas), mint, debian regularly. At work i have windows XP getting me into RHEL and AIX.

I did so about 7 years ago!
linux is getting closer to being a gaming os but still has a ways to go XP w/dual boot the only way for now

Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
I have no windows OS on any of my machines and made the total switch over in 1999. Have been able to accomplish pretty much everything I need to do with out Micro Soft OS. Best thing I ever did...
