    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I use multiple computers at home. One is kubuntu, this one I'm typing on is Mint, and I have 2 Windows machines. Can't entirely drop M$ products, as I work in IT support field and must keep up to date with what most clients will have. Eventually, I will probably use only one physical PC, but will run a mix of VMs on it (for that reason it'll have to be a pretty powerful machine). I plan to use Mint as my host OS on that future PC.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I'm not a gamer, my gut instinct is that Linux would/could run your gaming better - BUT (and it's a big BUT; Linux still has to emulate so many drivers that key faming tech (like my Razer keyboards, Nostramo, etc, as well as the high end graphics chipsets will take a lot of setting up. I know this would be outside my ability to do quickly. I suspect that if you built a machine specifically for Linux and got it running a bisc config withnetowrking (so a standard install) - you could then get someone who knows what they are doing with it to set you up over the web by giving them access for a couple of weeks and paying them a few quid. That done I think you would be flying - but it will be challenge.

    As I said I am not gamer and while I am currently aiming to build a new machine for my Ubuntu over Christmas and the new year I have decided to just leave gaming out of the machine ( I will just stick withthe PS3 etc).

    I will still have to use a high end chipset and graohics becuase I am working with Blender all the time - whic is interesting because a lot of games are developed with Blender...

    I think the answer depends on how serious you are about your gaming.
    Can Linux run faster and more reliably - yes!
    Will it take more setting up than a windows machine - YES!
    Will it cost more in time and effort - yes!

    Should you do it? ... for me , no , for a high end gamer - I think so yes.
    Free the web - free the world

    Switched to Linux 5 years ago, no regrets! Have 7 or 8 Linux machines for various business purposes here. Windblows is not allowed for business use on our network, linux only. Of course I repair them and usually talk the customers into trying linux.

    I completely switched to ubuntu about 2 months ago. I switched from windows 7, previously I used windows xp for many years. I find windows to be a stifling series of os's. Windows tells you what you can do with a program, whereas with ubuntu you tell ubuntu what to do with a program.

    I have a dual boot system with ubuntu 12.04 LTS, and Back Track 5 R3. I will never go back to windows.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've completely switched to Linux on all the machines I use/used. On my old netbooks I only had Ubuntu 9.10 and Xubuntu 12.04 on the more recent one. On my very old laptop I only had Ubuntu 8.10, on my desktop I only have Lubuntu 12.10.

    I could care less for what Windows has to offer I have an Xbox and my desktop while it can handle gaming I'd rather wait until Steam becomes a bigger success on Linux. Of course for someone like my Gf who has school she simply can't switch off from Windows lol.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I used to use ubuntu 2.5 years ago, and I would not have been able to completely switch to ubuntu back then.

    I installed 12.10 a week ago and was pleasantly surprised. This OS is a lot more user friendly now, and more fun to use. All the windows only applications I really need work well on wine (some old games work much better on wine than on windows), and thanks to the unity engine some really awesome game titles are coming to linux very soon (e.g. War for the overworld, etc).

    I don't think I'll ever need to switch back... windows is just too sluggish for me.

    As long as you know a few basic terminal commands, I think this OS can easily replace Windows for the average user's needs
