    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've been Ubuntu geek from 6 months ago, rarely booting Windows Vista.

    Last time I booted vista was 2 weeks ago, to log in a website -using IE- that cannot run fully-functional in firefox.

    And one more thing, to charge my mobile broadband Data-SIM, as I've not found a good application for that, which can allow me to send SMS using my USB modem sim.

    We won't think any less of you here if you use Windows, you know.
    lmao I know that, but netflix was really the only thing tying me onto windows, and for the few movies I was watching it wont kill me to find them on sites like hulu or elsewhere, or even by a dvd/blueray

    I use Linux exclusively on my PC, however I still have a Netflix account. I just use Netflix through my PS3.

    I get laughed at all the time because the tech school I go to has the microsoft IT academy accreditation and I refuse to use anything but Ubuntu. Although it makes things tough when I take courses like server 2008 configuration and windows 7 configuration and I have no way to study, but with my major, i have a feeling that linux is going to be more of a major player. there is a misconception that microsoft dominates all markets and that simply is not the truth. so for the time being ill swallow my pride and take the courses for my degree but i wont compromise and put windows on my home machines.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    However, I'm still looking for that "wow" factor. Ubuntu does everything that other OS's do, and more, and better, but it hasn't really shaken me to my core. I swapped over for simplicity, not for innovation: I've already been converted, but is there something I'm missing?
    For me, Gnome and Compiz Fusion were Linux's "killer app". Switching to Ubuntu and ticking a few boxes meant that I suddenly had a much prettier interface that really looked futuristic at the time, switching from Vista. Really, though, OSX is equally pretty, and equally quick, stable, and secure, for that matter. The wow factor for me was really predicated on switching from Windows, not OSX.

    But it was wowing at the time. = )

    I used to dual boot, but what a pain. Now I have XP installed in a virtual machine for the two programs I need it for, Quickbooks and Chief Architect.
    I'm not a gamer, but if I were this might not be an acceptable setup as the VM uses a lot of memory. I have 2GB and probably should have 4. I have no desire to go back to Windows.

    Ubuntu is the only OS on this machine. I use XP at school though, because that's what the school computer have. I tried using Win7 on my mum's computer, and it sucked. I couldn't do anything that I could on Ubuntu.

    You know, it wouldn't do you any harm to install VirtualBox and set up the Windows configurations you need to study with. Then you can just delete the VMs when you don't need them any more--shoot, you could make a party out of it! Pop a cork, think out loud "I've learned your OS, now here's what I think of it", then press the delete key.

    Thanks to the Ultimate Boot Disk CD I was able to save the data from a Billy box a friend has . Of course that program boots into Linux. Reminds me of why I don't do windows.
    If I have to go to a never version of quick books I will buy Crossover Linux before I use windows again.

    I got my MCP certification in 2003. Since then, i've switched to OS X, and then to Ubuntu. I do love my Macs but I've switched all the PCs at home to Ubuntu, and I just bought myself a System76 Pangolin laptop for Christmas! I've got our kids all switched over to Ubuntu from windows, and they love it as well.

    I've even installed it on my computer at work and use VirtualBox for the software that is windows only. I don't see myself ever going back.
