    If you are still looking, I've got a good Jtag programming hardware/software native to Linux. I'm a hardware designer, been doing it on Linux for years now.

    Just asking that IMO is a huge misconception of what computing really is about. (no offense intended)

    I mean I gave it serious thoughts and what first comes to mind is another question: How do you use your computer(s)?
    Just asking this questions will give the clues about what you really need and what you need is what best suits your use.

    Ubuntu is a great system but it still lacks things you could do with windows or OSX, It also has things the laters can't do or just don't handle well. plus Ubuntu is free.

    But what suits your use best is not necessarily a question of price.

    I personnaly have a laptop running precice and a server also running precise but the computer from which I write this post is Win7 and it will probably stay this way
    I mainly use my Win7 for gaming, photoshop, C# or asp.net dev etc... some of you will say wine or play on linux, gimp, mono...sweet illusion.
    For me, Linux is about choice. I don't have to upgrade to windows X when microsoft decides it needs another trillion dollars, I don't have to upgrade to office xxx when they decide I have to. For me, it is about control. I decide what the heck I want to run, not some company making money off of me. The same goes for Apple, who in many ways is worse and forces you to upgrade your hardware.

    If you prefer to have companies tell you what is good for you to their benefit, then by all means continue to support them with your money.

    I mean I would like to have Windows...I guess it's not really the end of the world. Here's my story for anyone who cares.

    -1 year ago I bought a $270 new Asus.
    -Windows 7 was so slow on it and I knew Ubuntu would make it a little quicker
    -I tried to install with both but for whatever reason Ubuntu wouldn't boot.
    -I messed up the partitions and now Windows 7 is gone for good.

    Pros:
    -My laptop is SOOO much quicker and smoother.
    -Video loads quicker and is crisper
    -I don't play PC games so I could care less about that

    Cons:
    -LibreOffice ... hear me out... It works FINE for me. I go to a University in Philly so I have a lot of papers I need to write. Libre works great. The issue is that I tend to write papers at home then edit them at school during breaks or when I'm staying with my GF in the city. When I open a Libre formatted paper the format always comes out messed up. Very annoying and makes me worry about emailing papers anyone else.
    -Netflix, what the hell...BOOOOO
    -iTunes to sync my media with.

    Aside from that Ubuntu 12.04 is GREAT. It's like I have a new laptop. I feel like this OS looks much more, modern? Better fonts, Unity Toolbar, ect.

    Any tips or tricks I should know about ... maybe apps?

    Netfix works well under Linux (wine). So Well, it appears to be Linux native.

    Apparently Adept works on Linux, so I just need something like Xilinx ISE.
    Ubuntu - "humanidade com os outros" or "sou o que sou pelo que nós somos"
