    If I could keep sound after every update I would always use 12.04 But after every update, I lose sound, so I use Win Xp

    In my country, all the important public service support only IE.
    E-banking, E-shopping(not like ebay, amazon), E-government, E-court only available on IE.
    Even legal multimedia download service too.
    100% people use windows now.
    Mac users must install windows for that public service.
    So I must use windows too.
    I installed vmware player on ubuntu for windows xp.
    It's annoying.

    But Ubuntu will be my main OS.
    I don't want to buy new OS license any more.
    It's too expensive.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Have tried to switch completely. I still have a lot to learn. Example software update for my a***oid only comes in .exe format. I'm not sure how to run the update of a .exe file in Linux and install in a rooted phone. So much can be done with Linux it will take a while.
    The up side is I have the oldest pc (9+ years)in my family, of which there are many as I am a Grandpa. Mine is by far the fastest. Love it!

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    After seeing the weirdness of windows 8 and the vomiting that occurred after using it, the furthest I will go with windows is XP SP3. Other that things like netflix, I will never use windows for anything that I don't have too.

    Even then, that virus they call windows will be kept in a virtual machine on my Ubuntu machine.

    Poo poo on windows. May your malware proliferate, and your hardware fail...

    Smile Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've been using Linux for quite awhile with Ubuntu on my laptop but for the longest time I ran Win7 on my main desktop rig. I just recently built a new desktop and decided to run Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and virtualize my old win7 desktop. So now whenever I need windows for something if for some reason it won't run in Wine, I load up my VM and boom, I have windows again. Plus, the wife still needs it for her school web applications that require Internet Explorer (gag).

    But yea I guess as of a couple weeks ago, I'm pretty much all Linux!

    Switch from Windows 8 to Linux. Am I alone?

    Well my moms friend who thinks he knows everything about computers decided to upgrade her laptop to Windows 8. I have been getting non stop questions on how to do things because of the fact that windows 8 doesn't have an adequate tutorial. So I explained to her how Microsoft will not likely be going back to the way old things are and in a while Windows 7 will be unsupported. So I switched her from Windows 8 to Linux. Then I decided I might aswell switch too, Haven't used it in a couple years. So has anybody else here switched from Windows 8 to linux? What are your reasons?

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I switched our household over to Ubuntu exclusively midway through 2012.

    I sometimes load up a virtual machine with Window$ on it so that I can use Rosetta Stone (language learning software) or Maple (algebraic manipulation software). I have stopped gaming temporarily until Valve releases all their games on Linux (i.e. when they release their Steam Box with Half-Life 3 on it).

    I hate Window$. I hate Micro$oft. I am so utterly over supporting and putting up with their crappy products, crappy ecosystems, and hatred of openness and progress.

    The only reason IE6 wasn't the last IE as they claimed it would be was because Firefox threatened their market share. They are an abysmal company.

    I will be required to code exclusively in C# in Visual Studio for the next 2 years of my degree, because Micro$oft has bought off my university. I am going to kick and scream the whole way.

    Don't get me wrong: Apple is every bit as bad. But they're a bunch of snobby elitist fools, so they've never managed to dominate markets like Window$ has, largely mitigating their threat.
