    How many people do you know using Linux?

    I know, 1.
    Haha.
    Someone who goes to my school (that only has 30 people per grade).
    I said I was installing Linux and he was like, I use Ubuntu. I was like @!^%$^#!^@&.
    Cuz most people are like "What's that?"
    It just weird to find someone in this tiny village who is using Linux also, it must be getting more popular.

    One, my parents.

    And that is only because I gave them my Dell Desktop mentioned in my signature.

    (Because my girlfriend has the same computer, as well as a laptop, and 4 computers in one little apartment seemed a bit silly to me)

    I set my inlaws house up with ubuntu desktop and ubuntu laptop. They use windows only in virtual box and that's only if they have to use some specific application or macro in microsoft office. I installed ubuntu on my fiances laptop too and shes doing fine with it too. I know maybe three or four other people that use linux.
    Spread the word Linux is the ****!

    My mother's desktop computer is set up with OpenSuSE 10.0 (dual-booting with Windows XP, though XP is only used for scanning), I'm pretty sure one of my cousins runs some version of Linux on his computers (he's a computer tech), my sister used Kanotix/Knoppix for awhile, then moved to Kubuntu 7.04, and both of my own laptops dual-boot Windows and Ubuntu. This one Vista, the other XP. I only use Windows myself because of a lack of modem support (accursed dial-up internet, I feel like I'm stuck in '99) in Linux and because I need Photoshop for work.

    A few of my friends run some version of Linux as well, mostly Ubuntu.

    Re: How many people do you know using Linux?

    Hmm... Let's see.

    Two good friends of mine are Linux heads (in the legitimate sense of that word), and beyond that... I know a couple people (not well, just in passing) at my college who are into Linux.

    And then, last but not least, I know *all of you*.

    So, quite a lot, actually.
    Have you ever found something in the second-to-last place you looked?
    If it seems like I am ignoring you, perhaps I am.

    Me, my gf and my boss. The other teachers here have it on the office computers but that's because I didn't give them a choice in the matter (I'd run out of patience cleaning up their viruses).
