    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I run XP and Ubuntu Studio side by side. As I fine tune Studio, I use windows less and less. Ubuntu is so much faster and efficient using the same hardware. Plus freeware and support are great. XP is as good as it will ever get, but I still use it for touch-screen aplications and for GPS aplications. Eventually, I will put XP down, RIP!

    Ubuntu only, for me and the kids. They do a lot of gaming.
    I have gotten ''can not live withouts '' working for others with WINE. But not on the full Crossover package. WINE seems better.
    I use windows & IPAD for government.
    I have gotten the USA government to switch more and more - The open source initiative signed by the President.

    I have been using only Ubuntu now for maybe four years. I last encounter with a MS product was when Vista ate my laptop disk. That did it for me and I broke the habit of using any MS PRODUCT.

    I kicked Windows to the curb in 1998, I was so fed up with Windows 95. There were several times that I came close to lobbing that $2,000 computer off my balcony. When Windows 98 came out and Microsoft announced that there were 3,000 bugs (IIRC) in Windows 95 so everyone needed to upgrade, I did, I upgraded to RedHat Linux. I'm proud to say I've been Microsoft free for 15 years.

    I do whatever it takes to make any computer system do exactly what I want the way I want it. I will change open source, patch, build from source as many times as needed to get it right. But when a vendor does not give me access the source of their broken code I will stop using their junk.

    Linux/Ubuntu fan for +5y, using Win7 only at work. I miss Windows only because of gaming ...maybe PS4 could make me less nostalgic

    My Desktop is a Toy, toys run windows, thats okay.
    My laptop runs linux, a toy os doesnt have either a tiling wm nor the alt+number that unity offers (its the same reason why, to me, kde is a toy DE) not to mention virtual desktops thats why i need a real OS on the machine i work with.
    I have windows installed though because with Visual Studio the toy-OS becomes a work OS.

    Seriously, windows is fine and unless u dont like nonfree software or having to pay for it theres no reason to not use it on a Desktop. It lacks on mobile devices and laptops though.

    I used a Windows side by side with Fedora for a while, then I used it side by side with Ubuntu and then Windows crashed and took Ubuntu with it. It just wasn't worth the time and money. I once spent 36 hours trying to bring back Windows from a virus to no avail. I realized I hated Windows with a white-hot fury. I finally just just did an Ubuntu only install and I've never regretted it. I still have problems from time to time but they're solvable and I learn stuff. I really like Terminal mode and given a choice will use it instead of the desktop. I'm a happy camper.

    I did. Since 2010. My little kids know only Linux at home (they use windows at school - unfortunately), but I am sure that they will feel comfortable to use Linux when they get older.

    I have been using various distros of ubuntu since 2006. I don't use Windows at all - HOWEVER I am now trying to use Sketchup and can't get it to run properly under Wine. It runs seamlessly on my wife's Window-driven laptop, but of course she refuses to let me use it for more than a few minutes!
