    I used to on a old machine, It was slow and could only handle windows up to 1998, so I was like, "this is a good time to try out Linux." Very stable but hard to install things on, still not completely sure how to use because we got rid of the machine. I might decide to install Linux on my Laptop that im getting for my senior graduation this year.

    i will run linux as soon as there is no mount devices / storage and a proper hardware add/remove system that doesnt mean having to do kernal rebuild.
    oh , and a install that works on all machines without having to go commando ^_^

    no im not cuz i dont know how to work it. that simple... i was born and raised on windows and i know nothing else sadly... and im not tech saavy enough to go out and switch OS's on a whim... no matter how good its supposed to be.


    plus ive never seen linux in real life... anyone got a screenshot?


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,

    i use windows.... it's easier to use than the easiest distrib of linux

    rurrouni : be sure to know what you are going to do, because linux on a laptop is not what i would recommend for a beginner, to say the least...

    1997 was a good year, wasn't it? Stick with windows, as no one will want to see this ignorance in the support forums.

    I have been usuing Linux for a few years now. The Fedora Cores to be specific. Great system. Even without rebuilding the kernal and running the heavy ass default it runs pretty well. You get a shitload of software and access to tons more, via YUM or the new(ish) Autopackage (haven't tried this one yet, though).

    Wouldn't recomend it to beginers, as it is Red Hat's testing distro. I'd stick with Mandrake, Ubuntu, or SUSE if your starting (unless you like jumping into the fire, which in that case, choose your fire size).

    Or you can take the test and see what is best for you.

    ive just recently been a convert to linux, and i have to say, other than a few issues, its AMAZING.

    why go to windows when the world is so OPEN!

    according to the test, i should use suse or mandriva, or ubuntu at worse....

    anyway, it's weird nobody used the argument of games against linux..... that's a big problem, if you want to play of course ^^
    (note : i didn't said there were no games on linux )
