    I switched completely - Jury is still out, but things are working pretty well right now, so it's looking good. I bought a new laptop, and it only came with vista, and although it looks slick, it's slow and Micro$oft has become increasingly annoying, so I decided to give Ubuntu a try.

    I only have one application to get going, and I'll be set. I run Ubuntu Studio, and it's working well so far, after the initial bumps. I'm hoping I can stick with this system - I like the advantages it has, and also offers some uniqueness, too.

    Completely Ubuntu here - except for WinXP Pro in Vmware - only use it to run Finale though - don't even need the MIDI playback, just the ability to notate, and none of the Linux equivilents have worked for me...

    I thought I would miss games too, but I mostly play CS 1.6, and that works equally as well in Wine for me as it did in XP, I bought UT2004 for the native linux version and now I play that more than CS, and I've also gotten into Open Arena, Nexuiz and Tremulous on the Open Source gaming side...I was gonna buy Quake 4 and Doom 3 but many friends told me they both suck, so I haven't bothered (yet, althought I may if I find them bargain cheap somewhere)...

    It's been a little over a month for me being 100% Linux, and I doubt I'll EVER go back. The hardest decision for me was KDE vs. GNOME, but wound up on GNOME and very happy

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Personally, I switched to Ubuntu a year ago. Before that I used SuSe for 4 years. I played with Madriva for a while while dual booting Win98SE. I think Ubuntu is the best flavor of Linux I have tried. I love it. I want to set up Doom, Quake and WOW in the future.
    My wife is stuck on XP. I do get her to use Linux when we are traveling. She is coming around as Ubuntu gets better and matures.
    I wish my employer would go to Linux but sadly they mainly use XP. The servers are UNIX and a few engineers use Linux. They also have a whole campus of software people in India optimizing code for Unix, Linux, C++ for their products.

    I am i Linux user , but still have windows, but my dad is a pastor at a church, and he's the head technology manager, and he is upgrading everyone to Dell computers. He gets all the old computer, and I upgrade them to all LINUX! YAY GO LINUX!

    One word: Photoshop.

    Never quite could get used to the GIMP. And I've got too many years of Photoshop experience to just start over at square 1 again.

    Well, I've been playing around with Linux for years, but only got SERIOUS about it a couple months ago...The only reason Windows is still in this machine is just a couple words..'Final Fantasy XI'...I've been in the game since the US release, and still haven't gotten tired of it...Otherwise, Ubunto is doin' everything I need, and in some ways BETTER than I expected...

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Windows? What's that?

    Nah, I'm just playin'.

    I have Ubuntu as my primary OS on both my laptop and desktop machines. But on my desktop, I dual-boot XP as well.

    Only reason I keep it there is because of Photoshop.

    I've got lots of games there too... But I haven't touched them (nor wanted to) since I came back to Ubuntu.

    (I play Vendetta Online, which runs natively in Linux, and it's plenty of game for me!)

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Well, technically, XP is still installed on one of my hard drvies but I haven't booted into it since Feb or March, and before then, I rarely booted into it. I've been using Linux since '99. The only reason I kept Windows around was for Flight Sim, but then I discovered X-Plane. Since then, the only reason I didn't reformat my hard drive was that it was dying, so I had to buy a new one anyway. So, Windows is still technically in my computer, but on an old, dying hard drive that will probably never get booted into again. And, when I buy a laptop for school, it'll be running Linux and any computer I ever use again will be Linux and, hopefully, I'll be working on Linux computers when I get out (going in for computer engineering). It's disappointing to see just how many people want to ditch Windows all-together, but can't because of x and y programs. Something's got to be done.
