    Why did you come to Ubuntu?

    I came to Ubuntu because I was tired of the strict licensing of Windows. It's not that I don't like it; but when I shell out $250.00 for a Vista flavor, I should be able to install it on a few of my own computers.

    So in a nutshell, I would say "freedom".

    So what made you come to Ubuntu?

    DRM was getting on my nerves and the fact I didn't know what was going on in my OS, scared me.

    Because I was fed up with viruses and the BSOD.
