I need to learn wine.
For several months I was using strictly Ubuntu 12.04 on my one desktop until I bought a laptop preloaded with Win 7. I use the laptop as my HTPC connnected to my TV and it works very well using XBMC. I tried setting up a Ubuntu partition on the laptop with XBMC but I couldn't get my Harmony remote to work (works with Win 7) or Sound to come out of the TV speakers. I am sure it is probably due to my own ineptitude but I eventually gave up and erased the Ubuntu partition on the laptop.
I continue to use Ubuntu on my desktop and doubt I would go back to Windows.

No bindows in this house 4 pc's 1 notebook all with ubuntu except one pc that runs ubuntustudio all my gaming is done in linux.
I only use Windows for Netflix. I wish Netflix would get on board. Everything I need is either native to Ubuntu or I have managed to get working in Wine or PlayOnLinux.
The new PlayOnLinux is actually pretty good. im running games like civ4, Medieval 2: total war, and Mount & Blade: Warband. Even old school fps like Unreal Tournament 1999. its running really well, with no complaints. i swore i'd never take windows off of my gaming computer, but 1 week ago i did, and i dont regret it one bit.
I completely wiped Windows from my laptop and put on ubuntu 12.04. Luckily fell in love with Linux's customization features. Now I have #! and ubuntu partitioned on my HDD but I can't dig too deep into #! until i configure my wireless drivers which I need a hardwire internet connection for (currently not available.) I will only go back to windows when I build my next desktop so I can run games with little to no hassle.
Picked up one of those Western Digital Media boxes so I get my netflix that way. Last Windows computer no longer needed.
only use windows for steam and files that take up large amounts of space
Whoever came up with the phrase "There is no such thing as a stupid question" obviously never had the internet.
