View Full Version : [all variants] What version do you use and why?

May 29th, 2009, 12:34 AM
I'm curious what version everyone uses and why they chose that version. I'll start!

I'm using 8.10 because it supports video drivers for my ATi x1950 AGP card still. I chose the 32-bit version because my wireless card doesn't have any 64-bit drivers.

Work issued laptop triple boot WINXP,WIN7,UBUNTU Work/other

I've got a kubuntu box at work on an old box Work/other

I've got a Ubuntu box at home on an old box Everything

I've got a ubuntu server at home web/email/ssh

all are 9.10
all are 32bit Older boxes

I use 32bit because I don't have any 64bit hardware may get a new architecture box eventually but probably get a new laptop first

i dual boot arch and ubuntu karmic.

well, dual boot is not the best term. i chroot in ubuntu to test some ubuntu specific commands and setting when i post in the support forums.

i occasionally reboot in ubuntu, but i'm lazy to submit bug reports... :)
