    COMPLETELY UBUNTU

    No windows. HAve used it previously. Now my hard disk is filled with 1 ubuntu, 1 IT@school Edubuntu and 1 Arch Linux.
    And I use all these for different purposes. And I love it. Never feel like going back to windows.

    You switched to Ubuntu for religious reasons? Oh please do explain.

    It will run just as well, better if you consider that you won't have to select the OS every time you start your machine.

    The only thing you may want to consider is if there are certain Windows specific apps that you use. Then you may want to try installing those apps on your Ubuntu and see how well they run in Wine, Cross-Over Linux or Plan-on-Linux.

    I have had Ubuntu installed on my laptop solely for about 5 years, and have never had any performance issues (my laptop originally came with Vista Home Premium, so Ubuntu was a spectacular upgrade and I've never looked back!)

    I run completely ubuntu for 3 years now, I used mandrake, fedora, debian, windows before. I also installed ubuntu server at work for 1 year now on all servers. The servers run apache, bind, sql, postfix very smoothly.

    If you have problems with gaming on Linux, make a Windows Virtual Machine. Install VirtualBox from the ubuntu software center, make a new virtual machine, set its specs, and install windows. Then you can stay with Linux and still be a gamer.

    Never had anything else. I built my first PC, was broke. Started with Mandrake, and now I use a Ubuntu version of PuppyLinux, LucidPup-528. Tried the Precise Puppy version, but for the moment I prefer this Lucid one. Habits die hard. I'm going to try out Arch Pup for my new server, but it is complicated in comparison.

    Puppy Linux 5.2.8 I think is my all time favorite Linux distro. I try and use other ones but I keep coming back to 5.2.8. Absolutely LOVE it!! I have Icewm, Openbox, jwm and xfce as my choices. Any other good ones to try?

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I switched to Ubuntu from a Windows 7 and for this 2 months I have it I like it. Yes I am still a n00b for a Linux OS but I learned some things. It's more safer than any Microsoft OS and more stable. That's from my exp. so far. Yes on Linux it's sometimes more complicated to install a game (it's not all "next to next" button mashing ) but I like it that way. Give you more satisfaction when you are done. Idk what else to tell only that I will never ever use Windows. Plus when I learn a little more I am thinking of installing Arch. I like the idea of building OS basically from scratch. Hope this help to convert more of people to Linux.

    Unfortunately still holding a win 7 version on one of partitions. I used it idk maybe 4 times in last year but still some software just doesn't offer what I need in open source world, thus the hold of win copy for now, I'm not fan of wine thus reason why dual boot is better solution for me. I quite new on ubuntu, first distro i installed was 9.10, but at time was not convinced With 12.04 i somehow returned to ubuntu and started to work on, and use regularly only ubuntu. However my wifes laptop hold a copy of xp in dual boot with mint and so far she did not start up xp neither once
