    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    All my systems have been windows-free since 2010. The only gaming I do on PC is strategy games, and there's lots of those for free in Ubuntu repos. Linux is easier than windoze ever was for my audio/video editing. The only thing I miss even a little bit about windows is easy photo printing, but I've found some workarounds for that.

    Have been using Linux for many years, mostly in a dual-boot setup with Windows. I still need Windows for Lightroom/Photoshop, but 2 years ago I got rid of dual boot and run Windows with VGA passthrough on a Xen hypervisor.

    No way I'm going back to dual-boot, let alone a Windows bare metal installation!

    More on Xen with VGA passthrough here: HOW-TO make dual-boot obsolete using XEN VGA passthrough. P.S.: I'm the author.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I don't remember if I posted here or not but I have switched both myself and my wife to Linux on our home computers. She runs Mint Cinnamon Edition and I run Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Beta 2.

    I'm in the exact same position. I really hope Valve can bring more games and developers to Linux.

    Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    I've switched totally to Ubuntu since probably 08, 10.04 is my favourite version. I have now 13.04 and it sucks!!! Not the mainly the UI (though I hate Unity) but sometimes while doing arbitrary stuff, it just freezes and the screen gets jumbled/garbled and I have to do a hard restart. Searched all over for a solution and I am yet to find one. Switched to 12.04LTS and it happened once (not as frequently as 13.04) and has not since. It happened while I was fooling around gstreamer on the live USB in 12.04 but with 13.04 it happens just out of the blue. Can't seem to really recreate the issue - it just happens arbitrarily with no apparent triggers (from me). I will post more details in the relevant section of the forum (if I can find it)

    No, please don't post your findings for 13.04. It's out of support and shouldn't be used anyway.

    On the other hand, if you try 14.04 and find it unstable please post.

    I'm totally in since Ubuntu 10.04 Netbook Remix. Never back to Windows, not in my personal laptop. BTW, I'm loving Unity, maybe UNR had something to do with this?

    Thumbs up Re: How many of you completely switched to Linux?

    Hi everyone, I switched over completely to linux, and totally dropped Windows about 4 years ago.
    I found dual booting annoying, and windows ate up a lot of space on my harddrive. Plus the windows installer wiped out grub everytime I had to reinstall it.
    I love my Linux
