    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    This year I made my choice on running Ubuntu alone for my Lenovo S10, got one, get rig original hard drive and replace with new one to boot completely with Ubuntu.

    No major problem faced but built in Mic not working with skype. Major use will be Web Development and CMS testing, light graphic and normal computer use.

    I've switched over completely. I got a good deal on a quad core refurb thinking it would be fast. Well it came with vista, pre SP1 it was fast but crashed all the time. With SP1 it took 20 minutes to boot. UBU 8.10 takes 1 minute tops

    windows was alwayz inconsistent in its boot up and shutdown times..

    what i love about linux is, it takes between 55-65 seconds to boot, every single time totally reliably. and the system shuts down in seconds, everytime.

    very consistent, i cant say the same for anything MS.

    Linux freak here.. overNout.

    Yeah, GIMP sucks. I still miss my Chrome filter that I had with Photoshop. I could make a mean electric jellyfish with the chrome and the wave filters.

    I switched about 8 - 10 months ago. I'm still amazed with everything you can do with it.

    I just spent about 3 hours getting rid of Antivirus 2009 (a very pesky malware) on my wife's Win XP computer, and I'm still not done. Every time I clicked on a link on the net, I was sent someplace else. I just couldn't figure out what was going on. I finally figured out that the malware wasn't gone completely. I decided to bite the bullet & told the wife that I had to re-format the hard drive and reinstall Winblows. I told her she'd be better off with Ubuntu, but she's too old-fashioned to switch.

    I went 100% on my laptop. I am too much of a gamer to give up my desktop

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I have used Ubuntu for a couple years. I used Linux on and off for years before that. I use Ubuntu as my primary OS and I do most if not all my tasks there. I don't like wine, cedega, crossover, vm machines, anything so I have to keep a windows box for some tasks. But my primary machine is Ubuntu and most of my tasks are done in Linux.

    I love Linux. It's incredible.

    But, programs such as KDE and Amarok are failing us with their new versions and their lack of a true desktop. Shame on them. It tends to drive me farther away rather than draw me in.

    i just installed about 7 programs... in about 5 minutes, and all are ready to go... and no reboot! that's another thing i love about Linux.

    Linux rocks!

    I switched (finally) at the last LTS release when my scanner support issue was resolved.

    Now my conscience is clear, my ethic is in practise,
    and I'll never need to dance with the devil again

    cheers,
    M
