Yeah, kinda random. I run on Ubuntu and wouldn't ever trade it for Vista. What I love most about it is that I can alter it however I want to. Oh, and of course because it is free xD

So the question is....do you use linux? If you do, what is your reason why it is the best OS?

I've used several flavors of Linux. At the moment, I'm running windows because of school/work stuff, but I'm setting up a Slackware box soon.

I thought that you were unemployed, and that it was a lifestyle choice.

I want to try to setup one of the virtual boxes
running linux as the main but winblows in the
virtual, just to play with it (and some old games)
has anybody tried that?

and it would be really fun to dig out
the DOS 6.22 and winblows 3.11
with the workgroups option,
i think i've still got the alpha
voice recognition release for it

i was just surfing and ran across this
i'm going to try on thurs when i get a
day off looks like fun, dual boot to start
i use GRUB loader

I have a vista virt machine set up in Ubuntu even though i dual boot vista lol. I've tried playing starcraft in it... doesn't work out. Its fine for web browsing, music playing, basically anything that is not graphically intense at all.

hehehe
winblows
only redeeming quality
is the availability of games
once thats gone its not worth it
come to think of it, its never worth it

Lol, me? No, I finally found a fucking job. That's actually why my posts have been VERY sparse since September. :P
