    i am trying to completely switch over but my college program is windows based and focused. they only support helping you if you use windows, i find this extremely annoying so i have my laptop dual booted for the time being.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I recently bought a new System76 Lemur Ultra Thin (lemu4) notebook PC and I upgraded to Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit last night. I made the switch from an ASUS N61JV-X2 notebook PC with Microsoft Windows 7 64 bit Ultimate Edition Service Pack 1. I strongly prefer GNU/Linux and Ubuntu in particular. It's much easier to learn how to use and there's a lot less troubleshooting and fewer problems to deal with so long as you don't try to change core system functions or files too much. Ubuntu Forums helps a lot to try to figure out the solution to a problem or to get more opinions about trying a particular solution before committing to it locally. The thing that I like about Ubuntu 64 bit GNU/Linux is the fact that it is such a huge base of users worldwide and it is very easy to install and to use on a daily basis. I would say that Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 64 bit is more features rich since I have it as well, but it is more difficult to learn how to use. It's not intuitive. Ubuntu is intuitive. It's also prettier than Windows 8. Ubuntu is sleek and modern looking and it is still easy to learn how to use. I chose Ubuntu because it is one of the most secure GNU/Linux distributions that still makes accommodations for user friendliness and usability. I like to upgrade to a newer version for free every 6 months in April or October of each year. It keeps things fresh and interesting. One of the best features about Ubuntu is how little you need to modify the default installation to harden it so it is more secure. The basic security guide is sufficient for most average home desktop users like myself. There's no need to go overboard with security. The opposite is true with Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. I find that I had to purchase a lot of software security products to harden it because it is a big target. Ubuntu 12.10 64 bit is a lot more secure than Microsoft Windows 8 Pro 64 bit. Both are lightning fast, but I give the nod to Ubuntu for speed and performance.

    I'm going to be life long Ubuntu GNU/Linux user. I will continue to use Microsoft Windows and Office products in the future, but they will be limited. Ubuntu helps me to stay secure and productive while keeping me entertained with fairly rich multimedia premium content. It makes my life much better and more enjoyable to use Ubuntu. It's like a drug except there's no side effects and it's not fatal.

    @Welly Wu

    I agree with you...

    But with Ubuntu workarounds workarounds workarounds for simple and basic things...

    Flash Support, Mobile application like KIES Itunes, Adobe CS Suite, Office 2013 ( can never do things with Libreoffice as it seems to be buggy) Video tearing issues etc.. puts me off to completely switch to ubuntu...

    And now I have removed Ubuntu completely after using it for a month (Sep 2012) I planned installing it after a long time to see how it is I think after 2009..but disappointed

    Now I'm very happy with Win 8 and Office 2013 (Both I got for free like Ubuntu.. u know how )

    Trolling. Check the post history, almost all his/her posts are about how Windows is better and they are almost identical in content.
