How many people in here run Linux?

    If so, what distro?

    I’m really not partial, I’m just curious.

    I run Fedora 18, ran Ubuntu for about 3 years.

    I do, Ubuntu on both home and work computer. Been running it since… probably 2008, since I have a very strong impression of Hardy Heron (8.04) being the first one for me.

    Ubuntu at home; plus I manage a server running CentOS.

    I converted after re-installing WinXP started to be a bi-monthly “thing.”

    @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.

    Well I am not a professional like others but I have running Backtrack for over a year now and started using Ubuntu a couple of month ago.

    I run Ubuntu on my home PC. I also use Ubuntu Server while developing – I use Vagrant which runs a VM for my dev environment.

    Wow, mostly Ubuntu huh? Nice.

    I’m guessing the only reason anyone keeps Windows is for Adobe Creative Suite. Am I right?

    Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” here.

    @AlenAbdula nice!

    I’m glad to see that Linux is so well represented on these forums. I just wishe creative cloud worked in Linux. Ugh… that would be awesome.

    +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!).

    @joe_temp

    Nope; all I need it for is IE testing. I still have Corel, but for graphics I mostly use Inkscape + GIMP nowadays. To be fair, while I *do* graphic design work, I’m more of a programmer overall.

    Linux Mint 14 “Nadia” here.
    @AlenAbdula

    I’m thinking Mint will be the next distro I try. You like it?
