    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I tranfered to Ubuntu when we were using Dapper Drake! For a number of year this was fine, but I needed to use a Windows system for a camera program that was better (at the time than Gimp - as it wasn't explicit enough for this dull mind). I have since inherited a 2008 Mac Book Pro from a relative who has died. I'm coming to terms with the Closed Unix System it uses on that. So outwardly, I am seen to use Windows 7, Linux Ubuntu 12.04 (Precise Pangolin) and 10.9 (Mavericks) on an Mac Book Pro laptop too. However, my first choice is Linux or Ubuntu every time - which is why I chose to call myself Linuxfanatik in many quarters, as well as terabyte1 here.

    I switched completely over to linux in 2007 or 2006.

    I own a copy of windows but I never use it, instead I have tinyxp and tiny7 that I use in vmware to do certain things like install the prc pack in neverwinter nights 1, then copy the modules over to linux.

    The gameing issues are comming to a close thanks to the efforts of the community and I have had no issues with anything I have tried (other than oversights by either canonical or authors of software). The dvd issue one of the posters mentioned is due to gstreamer not being compiled with mplex (libmjpegtools-dev) I believe.

    I've used Microsoft since 1980 but having problems with all the junk I need to do to keep things running clean. I spend too much time doing maintenance scans etc.

    I and now using Ubuntu 13.10 and enjoying it! However I'm and old fart that understands the old fashion MS structure. I'm into ham radio and need a little more than word procession, Internet and email.

    Reading so many threads and documents I see a lot of junk that I just don't understand at this point and a little hesitant to make the switch 100%. However I'm working toward that end.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    We haven't made the switch 100 percent yet. I have one windows program that absolutely refuse to run on Linux, even under wine or crossover, so I keep a windows computer around for the kids to run those two programs for them. I don't let them use that computer for going on line just so I won't have problems with viruses on that one and if those programs need any updates I just buy a new cd of each of those programs. But, other than those programs, we are Linux all the way. Even our old computers run better with Linux and it is so nice to know we don't have to go out and replace our old computers.

    I have Ubuntu on all my 3 computers and run it 99% of the time. Very, very occasionally I have to run an app which is not available in Linux - shame, pity! I have a triple boot setup on my old desktop: Ubuntu, Fedora and Win XP. Believe it or not I have an app which runs only in XP, not in Win 7/8.
