    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    The only single app that keeps me attached to Mac is: OmniOutliner.

    So, I keep using my Macbook. But my main computer, my desktop computer, has Kubuntu on it. It has Mac OS on another drive, but I never use it. The limitation is the fact that it's a power pc Mac and fundamental things like Wine and, especially, Flash and Dropbox don't work in Linux Power PC.

    The day I find an alternative to OmniOutliner for Linux, I will probably switch completely to Linux. Especially because my next desktop computer will certainly be a normal PC in which I will erase windows (blarrghh) and install Linux, and then have flash, Dropbox, Wine, etc.

    I'm sick of Apple. If it had the power of Microsoft, it would be much worse. So, OmniOutliner is the trigger missing.
    Ubuntu 13.04 (Gnome Classic) running on a PowerMac G4 (Sawtooth); Kubuntu 13.04 running on a Macbook 2,1

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I switched completely to Ubuntu 12.04 in May 2012 and have had some issues, but overall do not regret my decision. I miss playing some games which I had purchased through Steam, but oh well. One thing however I did not anticipate was the inability to stream Netflix in Linux. I've read up on the info available in the forums and looks like the topic has been beaten to death. Linux is great, I have no issues (for the most part), and with the help of the many people on these forums, I was able to hit the ground running. If you are unsure of switching, keep the dual boot, but once your ready, go for it and don't look back. Learning Linux has made a huge difference in how I use computers, and that is something I could not have done with Windows (98 through 7).

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've got a whole lot of machines that can't run Linux, mainly my XT's 8 bit Atari's, Atari ST's Commodore 64's and MSX's won't run it, neither my 286 and 386 machines..
    The oldest Linux machine I've ever used was a Pentium 133 with an ancient version of Puppy Linux.

    I've got three Xubuntu 12.04 machines, an AM-2 Sempron 2800+, a Socket A Sempron 2200+ and a P-4 machine, the older two are a tad sluggish here and there but function well enough, the AM-2 machine works quite okay.

    Hello,
    have you considered Octave? it's said to be 99% compatible with Matlab...

    I completely switched to Linux, I only have an issue with the flash plugin

    But... everything else just

    Problems like flash and a lot of other silly things which doesn't require the user to bother about are plaguing Linux..

    OS should be ready in every way and ready to cater the needs immediately..A user using Windows need not bother whether Flash will cease support, whether my iphone will connect etc. etc..

    Until all the issues are fixed, a user cannot completely switch to Linux..and Linux will never gain the popularity in desktop market...

    The flash issue can be solved in two ways. Either install Google Chrome, or install the plugin flash-aid for Firefox.

    Ubuntu is the reason I switched completely over to linux. And of course windows 8. I have not regretted it, Ubuntu is amazing. Before I used Ubuntu, windows 7 was my favorite.

    The only thing holding me onto windows now is photoshop. Its quite frustrating really. I can get CS5 running in WINE but its less than satisfactory. All my other stuff, Sublimetext, filezilla and my other dev tools work fine, in fact, brilliantly.

    I do a lot of freelance which is deadline based and I rely on photoshop to just work, so I guess until Adobe get there act together and sort something out, I'll be chained to Windows7

    This is my point.. Why to bother changing to Ubuntu when things don't work out of box..and there are so many issues plaguing around it...

    All problems have solutions, flash works right of the box here and have been doing so since version 8.04, now Chrome comes with flash so install it and it works. Nothing is plaguing Linux except the users who are hooked on Windows period, in their case, better for them to stick to it.
