Thread: Have you switched yet?

switched over completely last night.
have a few servers running linux, have an IPCOP box set up to control my linux network, have Asterisk running on top of CentOS to give a kick to my VoIP line, have a CS:Source and Ventrilo Server running on top of Ubuntu (for friends, I used to game a lot, dont have time for it now), and as of last night, my main rig is running Kubuntu.
windows took yet another dump on me last night. was forced to reformat, upon trying to gave me all kinds of new errors. popped in the Kubuntu disk, and let the magic happen. mounted the NTFS drive and been grabbing files off it as I need them, once complete am going to throw that drive in another system and make a file server. only place I'm in M$ environment now is at work."There are only 10 kinds of people in the world, those that can read binary, and those that cannot."

Why are you unable to use linux on your pc?

The reason I am unable to use linux is 2 reasons #1. nothing is able to detect my SATA harddrive and #2. The DoD does not support it.

I have only a virtual machine with ubuntu/firefox internet only.
Windows 7 for programming
Windows XP for gamming.
At work the corporate standard is XP. 100 workstations, 120 users, windows server does it very well.
No need to type any command !!!

I am down to 2 OS's but I am trying to sever ties to MS just to see if I can. I don't game as much as I used to and UBUNTU seems to cover my daily activity. My wife's CreataCard and SIMS2 is a holdup right now.
I am trying to turn on as many people as possible to Ubuntu as it is easy, reasonable learning curve and you can be up and surfing in 17 minutes on a Pentium4 from the time the disk drive closes. your dirty copy of xp which is slowing you down may well just sit there as an unused dual boot

Just re-read this the entire thread. Man, 4 years ago couldn't get Linux going. Now I'm all about the Linux.
I run it on my home desktop and build servers with only Linux, usually Debian.

I'm from the uk
I started using UBUNTU ( hardy heron ) and haven't look back, I have tried quite a few other distros but stuck to ubuntu, a nice look a like distro for MAC is PINGUY it has got the stack at the bottom, go into a browser, office, photo the whole screen is part of the program you are using. worth a try if looking for a mac. ?

I used to have mandrake or redhat back in the days (2005) but after ubuntu wouldnt recognize my usb network adapter i switched back to XP.
now its toooo late to apologize.. win 7 be pwning.. specially for gamers and regular dudes.
we should have a laptop with linux though... getting experience in linux/unix is a never a bad thing . Dammet i would try a freaking MAC if i had to for a job.. one-clicking-white-plastic-device i hate lol.
