    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Not only have I switched entirely, but I'm converting others. I've installed Ubuntu on the PC of at least four other (consenting) users. I'm never going back... ever

    This is almost exactly my scenario except I was still planning a switch before windows 8 was even announced. If steam doesn't do well on linux I will convert over to the next gen consoles. Either way I'm migrating from windows. I built a new pc to use as my steam box and surf the web on tv with xubuntu. My primary desktop will run 7 for a while until its no longer useful for games and other missing software. I don't see any reason to dual boot my desktop because I can play with linux on my media pc.

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

    I may be fairly new, but I tried Ubuntu for the first time last year, unfortunately that went south because the laptop was too old to handle anything modern at ALL. But I love Linux, and I love the communities like this one for Ubuntu, and the fact that you all drive it to make being a Linux user smoother to the new look and feel. I HATE windows now, the only reason I might use it on a desktop as a dual-boot, is because I haven't had time to convert my girlfriend xD I completely left otherwise.

    Now I just want to find a section here that could point me in the direction for learning my terminal and linux enough to use other distros that require manual setup, like Backtrack or some of the Red Hat distros. I have been giving them all a look around

    I haven't given up neither Windows nor Mac OS X, but I'm working on turning my MacBook Pro into a triple-boot system >3 I feel so...so...power-mad! MUAHAHA!

    Unfortunately, I just installed Ubuntu Studio OVER my fresh install of Windows 7...*sob*

    I do use only Ubuntu on my old HP Pavilion desktop...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Finally switched to Linux a few weeks ago.

    Pretty much nailed all the things I like to do after a 3 or 4 year play period.

    KDE (Kubuntu) is pretty sweet for the way I work on my desktop computer. I'm no gamer, but everything else I could do on Windows I can do on Linux, but with the added benefit that all my software updates without me having to intervene at all.

    I've got a retail package of Windows 7 sitting on the shelf and to be honest that's where it's sitting gathering dust. I have no need to install it especially as the start menu is so messy, it loves to create icons everywhere and leave files when you try and get rid of things with applications needing singular updates I can't be bothered with it then Windows update makes you re-boot when it wants. Registry editing makes you feel all computer geek, but I'd rather have a GUI button to press.

    Linux saves me time and enables me to have fun using the computer.

    64 bit Linux has come a long way so it's now viable and faster than 32bit with pae. Most web pages use html5 so even if flash was not to work most websites would work anyway.

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

    100% Linux household -1 Ubuntu, 2 Kbuntu and 1 Android tablet BUT, just refurbished a friends machine with 12.04LTS and cannot view YouTube video nor HULU videos... @#$%^ Embarassing after a tremendouse "build-up" --supporting LINUX (Ubuntu in particular). What I am finding so far --as far as updating Adobe's SWF is their 404 error page when attempting to fix the problem.

    I can view Hulu's stuff, YouTube's stuff on the Kbuntu machines but the Ubuntu boxes (mine and client's) will not. Although the problem seems to be an Adobe Problem... Seems to me that Adobe/Ubuntu/Canonical should have, would have, enough clout to force Adobe to G.T.S.T. in a more timely manner.

    Ubuntu 12.10 on one PC and Ubuntu Server 12.04 on the other. I have gpm, sc and bsdgames with Tetris on the latter. It's almost like having X.
