    If someone asks you to sudo rm -rf anything, don't do it, and don't run any command with rm in it unless you know exactly what you're doing.things i have learnt changing from Xp pro to Ubuntu

    Only reason I keep windows around is the Outlook email client. Evolution is slow at best when connecting to exchange. I'm a heavy outlook user and Evolution just doesn't do it for me.

    I will throw Windows by the window when I will find something better than the *dobe Creativ* Suit*... or when this one will be port to Linux (which I doubted).

    Do nothing unless you must, and when you must act -- hesitate.

    I will stop using Windows when Force Feedback works perfectly in Ubuntu.

    Hi

    For personal use i gave Ubuntu a go and pretty happy with what it delivers. Excluding some wireless problems.

    However i am an architect and to be able to make full use of it I have a collection of programs that must use in order to be able share data with other people i work with.
    Once i can run AutoCAD, Sketchup, Photoshop ( which i believe already runs on Ubuntu ) and Indesign i can be completely Windows free.

    I know that there are alternatives to the programs i use i am forced into standards set by industry and there is no getting around that.

    So until wine or something similar gets much better i will have to continue using Windows.

    I boot to Wintendo to run Doom 3, Oblivion, Civ 4, and UT2k4. And I know that last one runs native under 'Nix, but not as smoothly, and not with a gamepad.
    For everything else I use 'Buntu or PCLOS.
    Yeah, I've got Oblivion also, plus The Sims, Sims 2, Age of Empires series, Flight Simulator, several MMORPG's, and a few more.

    For everything else, I'm trying to find alternatives to run them in Ubuntu.

    the only reason I keep windows is for the moments when I am helping a friend on some of many windows issues, Xp or Vista, and it is only in a virtual box environment, thus there is no M$ partitions on any of my computers.

    School requires it for homework, Photoshop is irreplacable, as is Counter Strike and Halo (The only good thing to come from Microsoft?)

    I'll delete my windows partition when I get Half-Life 2 to run in Linux with the same performance I get in Windows (something around 40FPS. In Ubuntu, I never got above 20FPS). I have an AMD Sempron 3100+ with a **** GeForce 5200FX.
