I never thought this would really happen.
I can now edit video at a professional level on my Ubuntu box. I kept my vbox of windows 7 just so I could run Sony Vegas. Once I adapt to the UI on Lightworks, I think I can stop using Sony Vegas.
With Steam, all but one of the games I play are now running on my Ubuntu box.
I do still have Photoshop in a vbox of windows. The newer Gimp is better, but a few things still need Photoshop. But Gimp is getting closer all the time.
I use Chrome on my Windows, OSX and Linux boxes and also on my Android tablet to surf the web and share my bookmarks. It works very well.
Things sure have come a long way. The view is very nice from up here!
