    Not used Windows since '03, although we keep XP for the boy's gaming.

    New netbook came with windows7, as I had already paid the ms tax I spent considerable time finding out how to wedge in a linux partition to dual boot ubuntu.

    Then I thought, "I'll never boot windows, why bother?" So I blew it away and installed Natty.

    I'm still using Ubuntu exclusively, but I wish I didn't on my netbook, since the multi-touch on my egalax screen still doesn't work, not to mention that there seem to regressions in the touch support in every new version of ubuntu and we have to figure out new work-arounds every time. All this fiddling with xinput better pay off in the end.

    These days i only use Linux whenever Windows has a hiccup. Which is more often than i would like. Using Elementary OS mostly as a "fallback" mode to Windows. Otherwise i use Windows exclusively until i buy a Macbook Pro.

    I only use Windoze to do my books - sadly nobody has developed a Quickbooks release for Linux as yet, at least not as far as I know. Other than that, Ubuntu hasn't let me down in the past and I hope it won't let me down in future.

    Keep up the good work guys!

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Well I've been using Linux Mint 9 and fell in love with it instantly. Been waiting for the arrival of Natty Narwhal (despite all the bad reviews I really dig it much! It's my kind of visual eye candy thing). And now I don't think I need windows for anything so I deleted it from my system. I thought well I already have my psp and tons of games with it I don't really need to install any games on my laptop. Well I was wrong found out about Tumiki Fighters (which is the best arcade-game i've ever played) and hedgewars is too cool! I now mainly use my laptop for those kind of games, doing text editing stuff, listening to music and watching movies. I even gave up my Zune because my psp works great as a music player as well c:

    Try installing it under Wine. Install wine for the official Wine PPA, that will ensure an upto date Wine installation.

    AFAIK Hawx is DX10 capable but DX 9 is installed at my end.

    I don't understand...

    "switched to Linux?"

    OH! You mean from Solaris!

    Yeah, a long time ago. Around '98 or so...

    I still keep a VirtualBox Solaris machine around (somewhere...)
