View Full Version : How Many of you are Ubuntu 100%

June 7th, 2007, 03:22 PM
I was just wondering? I am trying to learn Ubuntu but it gives me hard time sometimes lol.

June 7th, 2007, 03:23 PM
I am 101%...

June 7th, 2007, 03:31 PM
me me me

June 7th, 2007, 03:34 PM
I duel boot with Windows but Ubuntu is my main OS. I only log in to Windows if there is a networking issue to see if its a Linux thing or if the router is playing up. Its always the router but I just got a new one so here's hoping it works better!

June 7th, 2007, 03:34 PM
Not me, I use Zenwalk on my desktop. I may not even be linux 100% in future, I've been thinking about trying out other free operating systems like BSD, though I will still mainly use linux.

Cheese Sandwich

100% Ubuntu at home. RedHat, with a little solaris & windows at work.

June 7th, 2007, 04:10 PM
0% Ubuntu (well, it's not entirely true, I still have an Ubuntu installed but it's for testing purposes only, I don't really use it). In fact, I would use BSD full time but I still use Linux for my Windows need (vmware doesn't run well on BSD yet). So basically, Windows is the only reason I still run Linux at times :D

June 7th, 2007, 04:12 PM
100% at home. I have a Windows installed as VM, but I never boot it.

At my previous job, 100% as well. But this company has strict policies regarding desktops. So I'm not allowed.

June 7th, 2007, 04:12 PM
0% at the mo; computer broken :[ Have to use family windows PC.

June 7th, 2007, 04:14 PM
I'm 99% Ubuntu. The same partition I use for movies and music houses my Windows Vista. I never boot into Vista though.

June 7th, 2007, 04:22 PM
My computer is 100% Ubuntu but I still use Windows on my laptop

June 7th, 2007, 04:26 PM
Have Ubuntu on my desktop and laptop. I use rdesktop to bring in a single windows app.

Now the admission:
I have 4 Windows clients (wife & kids) on a 2003 Server domain. I delve in only for maintenance reasons. I swear.

June 7th, 2007, 04:27 PM
I still have a Windows partition, but since i installed Ubuntu I never use windows.So I suppose I am 100% Ubuntu I just haven't taken the time to remove my win partition. I'm still learning linux tho and a few things have given me problems but that is to be expected. Windows was unstable for me and crashed daily, leaked memory too. But Ubuntu does not appear to leak memory and has only crashed twice on me in 6 months or more and that was because i did something stupid in the terminal. Well I am learning after all. haha

June 7th, 2007, 04:35 PM
I am 100% ubuntu. I do run xp to test apps I developed but thats in a VM.

June 7th, 2007, 04:35 PM
100% Ubuntu user after trying it about a month and a half ago. It just looks, feels, and works so much better. I still have windows on my desktop but i don't boot to it anymore. I have also found i am using my laptop a lot more since i have ubuntu. I think i'm getting addicted to the amount of modifications i can do to the interface, it's fun :p

June 7th, 2007, 04:43 PM
100% ubuntu. The only time I use windows is if I need to use someone else's computer.

June 7th, 2007, 04:48 PM
I'd say at home I'm 95% Windows-free. I still dual boot, but I pretty much never boot into it to use it. I booted into it not long ago just to get some updates, but that was it. My license on Zone Alarm Pro expired a few days ago...I was kind of waiting till it expired so I could work on being 100% Windows free.

At work I have no choice but to use Windows XP Pro.

June 7th, 2007, 04:53 PM
Me! Just look at my bean rating ^^ ;-)

June 7th, 2007, 05:04 PM
At home I'm 95% Ubuntu. I still have a XP partition for games (I don't game that often anymore though). At work, I'm 25% Ubuntu. I still have to run XP but I have an Ubuntu VM set up through VMWare.

June 7th, 2007, 05:14 PM
right now I'm 100% at home.. use XP at work.

I am considering putting XP back on my pc at home for gaming but I have a server and two laptops at home also and they are all ubuntu

June 7th, 2007, 05:15 PM
I have an XP machine, but I haven't used it in about 4-6 weeks. It's basically only good for gaming now, and I haven't been in the mood. So yeah. 100% Ubuntu.

June 7th, 2007, 05:16 PM
I used to dual-boot with XP, but recently I cleared the entire XP drive and dedicated it to Ubuntu. I am now officially 100% M$-free and using Ubuntu exclusively .

June 7th, 2007, 05:17 PM
I use this 100% Ubuntu laptop 95% of the time, a 100% Debian desktop 4% of the time and a 100% Windows school PC 1% of the time. You do the maths!

use a name
June 7th, 2007, 05:21 PM
99% I've got XP around for, uhm, when I need it? I only need it for testing purposes though.

June 7th, 2007, 05:28 PM
Depends on whether you mean personal or in general. I was 100% Ubuntu personal before my laptop died and had to be sent off for repairs. Now I got an Ubuntu headless server and use a Windows machine once in a while.

I do use XP at work, no way to get around it.

June 7th, 2007, 05:29 PM
Im 100 too... or I have a MACbook, but Im gonna put Ubuntu on it when I have time. OSX runs really slow on it right now :S

June 7th, 2007, 06:14 PM
I am! Ubuntu on my laptop and desktop. I LOVE Ubuntu. My dad got kinda mad at me for wiping Vista off my laptop though... but I don't really care, he got over it.

June 7th, 2007, 06:41 PM
100% at work and home, two laptops and a desktop.

June 7th, 2007, 06:44 PM
100% here - home, laptop and office.

- trib'

June 7th, 2007, 06:45 PM
100%, Ubuntu rocks!

June 7th, 2007, 06:47 PM
I'd say im 50/50 with Xubuntu and XP. I use Xubuntu for day to day stuff but for real work i have to use XP unfortunately

June 7th, 2007, 06:48 PM
I was ubuntu 100% for a few months, but last week set up a dual-boot so I could play Sid Meier's Railroads again. I'm still in ubuntu 95% of the time though.

June 7th, 2007, 06:50 PM
100% Ubuntu here. Went back to XP a couple of weeks ago (dual boot) to finish some coursework off using Packet Tracer (stupid Cisco) but back to Ubuntu again now that I've finished for this year.

June 7th, 2007, 07:04 PM
Somewhat, probably will never be 100% any OS if i have my preference. =] Run a dual-boot Ubuntu/WinXP on my main computer(haven't booted into Windows since Jan). My server PC runs sidux and my iBook dual boots OSX/Xubuntu.

June 7th, 2007, 07:06 PM
certainly not me....in the last months I've become more and more "less ubuntu/linux"...

June 7th, 2007, 07:08 PM
I have a mainly 4 machine home network, 5 when Son No 1 comes home from university with his laptop.

Three of the permanent network are 100% Kubuntu. The remaining one, the Wife's that shall remain untouched (for the time being) is XP Pro. The visiting laptop is also XP but Home.

Must say it's sometimes useful to have a Doze box on the network somewhere...locked in a small dark room....

June 7th, 2007, 07:11 PM
I duel boot with Windows but Ubuntu is my main OS. I only log in to Windows if there is a networking issue to see if its a Linux thing or if the router is playing up. Its always the router but I just got a new one so here's hoping it works better!

Same here I have Ubuntu and windows. Ubuntu is my main OS and windows is just there for games. Like 1 game which I hardly play.

June 7th, 2007, 07:13 PM
I use windows for music and Linux for everything else.

June 7th, 2007, 07:21 PM
98.5% Ubuntu. Have one computer for Linux and one for Windows XP. I rarely use the windows box, the lest time i booted it was about 2 weeks ago. I only ever use it for playing counter strike, or if Ubuntu is having a full distro update. (Nothing like an hour of counter strike while your proper computer installs updates for free!)

June 7th, 2007, 07:22 PM
Yep, 100% here.

June 7th, 2007, 07:30 PM
I have a dual boot with Win XP and Kubuntu. Use XP for games and buying tracks from itunes.

June 7th, 2007, 07:35 PM
100% ubuntu. The only time I use windows is if I need to use someone else's computer.

Same here :D

June 7th, 2007, 07:37 PM
100% Kubuntu on my laptop - for work, programming, and general messing around! When I use the PC, though, it tends to be XP, because (most) games=>windows.:(

June 7th, 2007, 07:38 PM
100% ubuntu. The only time I use windows is if I need to use someone else's computer.

for me its replace 'use' with 'fix' and insert words spyware, viruses, Trojan and Keylogger :(

June 7th, 2007, 07:43 PM
500% Ubuntu.


June 7th, 2007, 07:47 PM
95% Ubuntu, 5% XP. However, I will never use Vista, so when XP dies, that's is for Windoz.

June 7th, 2007, 08:07 PM
I have been 100% Linux for 9 years now. I did have Ubuntu on this system, but I am a true Slackware guy at heart, so I switched to Zenwalk Linux, which is the only OS on this machine.

June 7th, 2007, 09:00 PM
I am for personal use. At work I deal with Macs and PC's.

June 7th, 2007, 09:03 PM
85% Ubuntu and 15% FreeBSD. 0% Windows. I don't need Windows but I do need to figure out how to decrypt the data on the Action Replay DS device since the Windows-only software doesn't work with Wine, making an awful error message that has nothing to do with missing dlls. It is against my principles to waste time bothering trying to fix it to run with Wine. I know what device(s) appears in /dev whenever I plug in the usb connection to Action Replay DS but I get "no such device" when I try to write data to it. (I do that as root, of course.)

But that is still not a reason to revert to Windows. These businesses must become aware of Linux or I will just simply have to do mean things to their precious little encrypted drive.

June 7th, 2007, 09:16 PM

Why do you use Doze for music?

All my I tunes stuff came over to Kubuntu and Amarok. Used the Doze box on the home network to convert some DRM infested tunes to clean and everything rocks!

June 7th, 2007, 09:22 PM
100% Ubuntu 7.04 on my home PC. However Windows and Office at work.

June 7th, 2007, 09:27 PM
My house is a Linux house in general. Kubuntu is the OS of choice for my wife. She uses it exclusively.

June 7th, 2007, 09:38 PM
100% linux at home, my choice: at work usually windows, sometimes mac, and very rarely, linux, not my choice!

June 7th, 2007, 09:53 PM
99.998% Ubuntu Feisty Fawn on my own machine. I do have an old hdd with xp on it. When I get bored with reading howto's, searching these forums, and tinkering with my new found love of Linux, I'll swap in the old windows drive just for sh*t's and giggles. Usually about 2 minutes is all I can stand and it's back to ubuntu bliss.

I still work on windows boxes for clients but, those are paying gigs so they don't count! do they? :P

June 7th, 2007, 09:58 PM
Look at it as 100% Unix-based, or 100% open-sourced. I think that part of the fun of Linux and open-source in general is that, because most of it's free, you can sample whatever you feel, from applications to entire operating systems.

June 7th, 2007, 10:02 PM
For regular use at home, 100%! At school we have to use Windoze, though. But I'm out for the summer so yay.

June 7th, 2007, 11:04 PM
I am 1/3 vector, 1/3 mepis and 1/3 ubuntu.

June 7th, 2007, 11:45 PM
no poll?

June 8th, 2007, 04:47 PM
The only thing i still use Windows for is games and syncing my Zune. If I could return the thing I would though, piece of crap it is. Waste of $250

June 8th, 2007, 05:58 PM
100% at home (both myself and the wife). I have an XP VMware image, but haven't fired it up for months, now that I've got FM2007 to run in Wine.

At work, 0%. No choice ...though I have managed to sneak in Firefox and oOo onto my laptop. Since I can also use my USB memory stick I can also use the Portable Apps Suite which is installed on it.


June 8th, 2007, 06:08 PM
At work, 0%. No choice ...though I have managed to sneak in Firefox and oOo onto my laptop. Since I can also use my USB memory stick I can also use the Portable Apps Suite which is installed on it.

Are you aware of Cygwin? I would be lost at work without it =]

June 8th, 2007, 06:11 PM
100% K/Ubuntu!

June 8th, 2007, 06:15 PM
200% Ubuntu, 100% Xubuntu :D

June 9th, 2007, 04:55 AM
I have a dual boot system with Windows XP, which I'm going to keep in case I need it when I (search for and) find work. However, I haven't booted into Windows since I got my wireless networking card working (which was well over a month and a half ago).

I only use Windows if I'm fixing one of my family's computers or if I need to do something quick and going upstairs to use my computer would be tedious. However, since I installed Ubuntu on our oldest computer, I don't usually need to use Windows when I'm on the main floor now.

So I think I can say that I'm 100% Ubuntu (and if not then I'm 99.9999% Ubuntu).

June 9th, 2007, 05:21 AM
100% at home never use micro whats its name at work i have to use what is front of me i am a PC tech

June 9th, 2007, 05:22 AM

June 9th, 2007, 05:54 AM
100% linux (at home). about 66.667% ubuntu

June 9th, 2007, 06:14 AM
I have dual boot with xpee but I haven't used m$ for a couple of months now,,,

June 9th, 2007, 07:12 AM
Home has two Ubuntu desktops, two ubuntu notebooks, a powerbook running OS X (Tiger) and a solaris server.

At work I administer 20 Ubuntu-based thin clients, 15 Ubuntu desktops, two Ubuntu servers, one Solaris server, six Windows servers, an iSeries AS/400, 18 Windows Laptops, and 68 Windows PCs. There's also a couple of IDS sensors that I built on Debian floating around somewhere too.

We are quickly moving toward integrating more Linux-based systems at work, because our initial experiments have had many advantages: It does what we need it to, the users aren't scared of it (friendly interface), it's very adaptable, inexpensive, and low-maintenance. The Windows servers are fun (Ever had to rebuild an Exchange server? *shuddering*), and the things a user with admin privileges (don't ask why) can do to a Windows machine is mind-boggling. The Linux systems are easier to run, and most of the software doesn't rely on the user being an administrator (root), so it's a lot less of a mess to clean up.

Making the move to Linux was not difficult for me, and that was with only 2 months of prior Linux experience. Once you get over that initial shock that most of the store-bought stuff won't work on it, you start realizing that it really doesn't matter all that much once you start using it. And it also means swallowing your pride and realizing that after years of being a power user/Administrator/God, you're stuck being a n00b again for a while. But it gets easier, and it gets easier FAST.


June 9th, 2007, 07:57 AM
Did someone mention God? ;)

June 9th, 2007, 08:03 AM
I was Ubuntu 100% (for personal use), but recently have been trying a fedora on for size. Windows? No way

June 9th, 2007, 12:47 PM
I'm 100% Linux Mint on my laptop, I just completely removed Vista this weekend because I couldn't make backup disks and I wanted my 20 GB back. I do have a Virtualbox of win XP on here that has Office 03 on it, but the only time I use that is if I have a large paper to work on with a group and I don't want to worry about OpenOffice.org messing up the formatting. I am running programs in Wine though (Diablo II, Steam, DVD Shrink), My desktop at home has Windows XP on it only because my wife uses all the Adobe CS2 Programs and the computer isn't fast enough to run that inside a virtualbox to her satisfaction.

June 9th, 2007, 02:13 PM
Two laptops both Ubuntu 7.04

100% for me. ;)

June 9th, 2007, 02:41 PM
I'm a 100% Ubuntu user, but I need Windows XP for some of the work apps that I use as well as some games.

June 9th, 2007, 03:09 PM
me 100%!

June 9th, 2007, 03:18 PM
Not 100% Ubuntu, but 100% Linux at home. I run Slackware on my servers, mostly for historical / nostalgic reasons - I've been Windows-free at home since roughly 1996-97 and Slack was my primary OS until 2006 when I started using Ubuntu on the desktop.

Still have to use Windows at work, though. Have some proprietary apps that have a hard enough time running on Windows natively - I haven't had any luck at all getting them to work under Linux/Wine. Oh well...

June 9th, 2007, 03:20 PM
Me too!! 100% Ubuntu! My new computer has never used anything else; it is pure and clean and undefiled ;)

I have to use Windows at work though: structural engineering programs SpaceGass and Strand7, as well as MathCad v14 :( :( But don't worry, I go through all the necessary washing and purification rituals before switching on my GNU/Linux computer at home \\:D/

June 9th, 2007, 03:26 PM
i only use something else when i'm forced at gunpoint or i'm fixing someone elses computer.

June 9th, 2007, 04:05 PM
At work, 0%. No choice ...though I have managed to sneak in Firefox and oOo onto my laptop. Since I can also use my USB memory stick I can also use the Portable Apps Suite which is installed on it.

Are you aware of Cygwin? I would be lost at work without it =]

Yeah, thanks for mentioning it. Though I'm aware of it I hadn't really considered using it. However I might just give it a try on my USB stick..


June 9th, 2007, 04:09 PM
100% at home. Even my wife uses it.

50% @ work. Still have to connect to a local intranet site in IE that was developed for IE. :(

June 9th, 2007, 04:09 PM
I am. For about 2 years now, 4 years if we say Ubuntu (well, Linux...) user 90% of the time.

June 10th, 2007, 07:51 AM
100% st home.And I am a user that always wants more functionality. I think Linux is a bit behind in voice recognition and games. But I stick with Linux.

July 26th, 2007, 07:45 PM
i am 100% ubuntu! I also made sure my computer case was microsoft free and ripped off the designed for windows 98/2000 sticker.

July 26th, 2007, 08:05 PM
Well, I had Windblows, went to Fedora 7 , then Ubuntu which right now, is the right OS for me. So I can say 100% Ub. I have Windows on another drive, I didn't feel Windows had the right to share my Ubuntu drive :biggrin: So I only use Windows "if ever needed" for a backup, lol. I don't even boot into it.



July 26th, 2007, 08:06 PM
I don't dual boot :)
