@traq Yeah, that’s when I went fully into Ubuntu as well. I’d been dualbooting on my laptop (but rarely actually used Windows), and had XP on my stationary, until I started to see at least a fair share of BSODs.
Currently I’m dual-booting Ubuntu with Windows 7, mainly so I actually _have_ a Windows somewhere, if I need it.
We ended up wiping Windows from my boyfriend’s netbook, to be able to get Ubuntu onto it, so we had no Windows until I bought my current laptop. Eventually I’ll probably get around to setup a virtual machine at home as well (at work I have XP and Windows 7 in virtual machines).
I had a little home server running Ubuntu (Hardy Heron as well) as webserver, cs1.6 server and media/torrent server (and because I needed it for some study related exercises), but I never hooked it up again after moving. I should hook it up someday again, for fun :)
That’s how I first ended up doing anything in Linux, a class in Operating Systems that included shellscript, and installing Ubuntu was one of the suggestions.
One of these days when I have time/energy I should go back to prodding at Gentoo to see if I can get it to behave. I never did get further than “almost” installing it, probably two and a half years ago, or so.
+1 for Ubuntu here. Running 12.04 on my desktop and Windows 7 on my laptop. I’m expecting my laptop to die soon and have no intention of replacing it (graduating soon, so won’t need a mobile computer!).
