    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've been using nothing but Linux for about six months now. It's so nice not to have to worry about all those windows problems. I thought I'd miss gaming, but I don't really care about that anymore. I sometimes play a few of the hundreds of free games in the repositories, those are always fun, if not exactly bleeding edge.

    I was told that the only way I'd ever really get good at Linux and be able to enjoy what it has to offer is to not use a dual-boot system, and that was the best advice I've been given ever, it was so true. Once I had only Linux, I had to force myself to learn all the complicated stuff to enjoy Linux as more than just a beginner user.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Have used Linux only for 6 months now. I fear it's only a matter of time though before I install WinXP as dual boot again to be able to run a few special windows programs from time to time. Doing normal tasks in windows will feel like troubleshooting now after being spoiled by Ubuntu.

    If/when I'm forced to use windows again I'll call tech support and say:
    "my filesystem broke into two parts called C and D how do i put them together again, and the two parts are both fragmented whats that supposed to mean, and it takes more then 2 clicks to install a program that can't be right, and there is some strange slowdown when I got only 30 windows open at once, and the cumputer says it has virus should I take it to the doctor?"

    ...so glad I've been able to stay completely windows free so far. As you can probably tell. I'm still having nightmares about windows.

    Completely at home about a year ago. At work I maintain a mac (mainly OSX) system with a few windows machines thrown in. I have OSX on my work laptop and must admit I like it a lot.

    The main reason that I switched too Ubuntu and gnome from SuSE/KDE was because it feels so similar to OSX that I use at work everyday. Basically I think that if it's nix based, I'm happy

    I have completely switched to Linux, using SimplyMepis, in December 2004.

    I am almost 7 months cured

    I think it is BS when people say that they still use Windose cuz of games.

    I play UT2004 and Diablo II on Ubuntu, and they run much better.

    Probably cuz you don't need all that extra crap running like spyware-blocker, destroyers, ad-frees, and virus-search-and-conquor type of programs.
    Those slow down the CPU and suck up alot of RAM.

    Real gamers use Linux, get better effiency out of their computer and also better FPS.

    Amen! Linux does the same thing, but MUCH better and MUCH cleaner and faster. Performance in gaming is smoother and the graphics card can actually breathe while reading the frames in MB's, ah, sweet relief

    Been using Linux since 1997.

    Use it at home and at work.

    Still have to support some windows stuff at work ... working on changing that

    Revolution happens from within

    Ubuntu is a great distro keep up the good work

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I wish I could compeltely switch to Linux, but my gaming habit, and some work stuff, stands in the way of that. I run dual-boot Ubuntu / WinXP Home on both my desktop and my laptop. My desktop has an Nvidia GeForce 6600GT card, so I can game in Linux as well, but games like Battlefield 2 and Half-Life 2 still need Windows (at least for me). I haven't tried Cedega / Wine for these, but I may in the future.

    My home fileserver is running good ole Debian
