I'm studying Windows Development, so that's mainly the reason why I'm not deleting the Win7 from my computer and not completely migrating to Linux (hypocritical, isn't it? ).
Windows has got huge possibilities for even further development and stability improvements, but sadly, no one pays attention on that any more, and that's where I just adore Linux!
I'm using Pinguy 12.04 LTS and I've gotta say that I'm thrilled about it! It's heavier than most of the other distros that I've used so far, but for day-to-day use, it's perfect. I have never experienced a crash, slowdown, driver issues or anything else. It's a heavy distro, but still not as heavy as Windows 7.
I would recommend everyone to at least try one of the many distros out there, because really you've got nothing to lose.
And a question, where can I learn more about the basics of using Linux?
