    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I have Ubuntu on all my 3 computers and run it 99% of the time. Very, very occasionally I have to run an app which is not available in Linux - shame, pity! I have a triple boot setup on my old desktop: Ubuntu, Fedora and Win XP. Believe it or not I have an app which runs only in XP, not in Win 7/8.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Haven't fully switched to Linux, but not a MS or Mac OS in house or work since 2010.

    Currently we're mostly Ubuntu and FreeBSD with a few Fedora and PC-BSD. (Android for tablets)
    I won't purchase a PC with a MS license, it costs/limits me, but I'm old, cranky, and its a matter of principle.

    And gaming works well mostly. I play Eve Online and Forsaken World, both work well enough, but I seem to be stuck on low Shader quality.

    I've got the grandkids on Ubuntu and Android. My kids cling to MS mainly because of their work.

    I was introduced to linux in late 1999 but (now ex) boyfriend, and never looked back. Now and then I get frustrated when services I'd like to subscribe to do not support linux or when I something doesn't work on my PC, but the case is very rare.

    first I had Debian, installed, then XFCe which I kept for a very long time and really liked and now xUbuntu for over 5 years now I believe. I'm faithful that way.

    The main reason why I keepnW7non my old Dell is because of my Galaxy S4, I like AirDroid but Kies Air loads my music & pics better. I remember Kies Air for Linux but it is long gone, I use Zorin OS now it looks and feels like W7 or XP.

    I'm not sure when I switched to ubuntu. I guess around my registration date here so in November last year.
    I just think it's cooler. That's about it
    I like doing things by myself.
    On Windows you don't have to do anything to launch a program. Here it is not always easy.
    I guess I looked for a challenge and I found it.
    Also I am not a gamer. Never played anything on PC, just on my PS3.
    Windows won't be missed.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I support windows and Linux machines for income, but do not use windows directly on any machine i use to administer windows. Been that way for over a few years. On Windows, takes way too long to install, configure, install third party apps, and keep them up-to-date. apt and yum is fricking awesome ... RIP Seth Vidal. Another reason is that i have given up on paid-for support for closed source software ... i like being able to talk developer-to-developer in forums, chat rooms, bugzilla... as it is more efficient and effective.

    At last I gave up my windows 8 installation completely and switched to linux completely. Don't think I will miss something, probably only some games but I'm positive that the situation with gaming on linux will soon improve much.
