    I use this https://apps.ubuntu.com/cat/applications/precise/gmtp/ for my Galaxy S3. It works very well.

    I just spent a fair amount of money putting together a gaming PC recently so I can't see it happening anytime soon to be honest. Not to mention too many uni projects would rely on Windows!

    The Mac Mini is running Ubuntu Studio; the Gateway laptop is running Ubuntu 12.10 (and Bodhi Linux once in a while). The iPad is collecting dust....

    I have about ten computers that I manage and all of them have Ubuntu as their primary OS. A few also can boot Microsoft Windows, which is an old-school OS that some of you may have heard of. Sometimes comes in handy when i want to use Itunes on an Ipod that I buy or sell here and there.

    This is why I'm so thankful for Ubuntu. I go fed up with swapping to disk, crashes and freezes with Windows on my old (then new) Thinkpad. It was cutting down on productivity. After I tried Ubuntu, that was it! I was sold, so I formatted disk and went with Ubuntu only. I don't own anything Windows anymore. Even my wife asked me to install Ubuntu on her netbook after using mine. I do wish that we could get the word out to the masses of what they are missing!

    It's been three years since I am using Linux. I think it works great. It is more secure then windows.Linux is customizable in a way that Windows is not.

    I switch to full Linux environment since 2010, after I graduated from my master. Since then, my resume for PhD job, report, fancy-flexible plots are all made by Linux (Ubuntu 10.04).

    The reason is obvious: I used an old, laggy MS Windows XP on a P-M, 768 mb ram laptop. Then I thought, why I don't replace MS XP with Ubuntu I used? Then I started with Ubuntu 10.04 without pain because I used it couple times. But it got better since I have used it.

    The only days I use Windows is/was when I am gaming and worked in a IT-infrastructure department in an international corporation in 2011. You will be surprised when only 5% of us could do the linux work, and I am in the 5% of them and they are graduated from management of computer science (but I am not, I was just a poweruser). Linux is still painful for people from windows world, even for people who learn computer science. My wife has manager Unix-based Cluster/HPC before, and she is very unwilling to use Linux instead of her laggy XP or laggy Win7 as she complained about. It's painful for people who used to MS-Windows, but I think people will survive after using it as a main OS.

    By the way, the people who distribute to the open source should be appreciated. Thank you!

    I have my home server as a solo Ubuntu machine but my main desktop still runs windows. I need to use certain programs that will not work on Ubuntu.

    I need Photoshop, and I really tried Gimp, and I spend hours trying with it, but no, not possible, not the same even close, so, let's say that Photoshop is the only reason I must keep windows, unfortunately
    Let's wait for Adobe if someday will allow use it in Linux...

    You can run it in Wine, no?
