Well, I have the "Mac share hold" thread, so, I thought that maybe I should start one about Linux.

Statistically, we should have just over 206 people on here using Linux.

*Note, This stat. is when we had 19 674 users*

And one who would gladly switch if installing Linux was as easy as installing Firefox/Chrome...

have you tried installing linux using wubi, you can install it within windows and if you dont like it you can remove through add/remove programs:D

It is how I got into linux

Is wubi like Virtual Box? We have virtual box on our home laptop, and can run either Linux or Windows XP in it--maybe we can run both, but I don't know. I usually just use it for editing old Word files in XP (since we failed to get Word when we got this Windows 7 laptop in the US in February, and Works doesn't do what I want it to do). My DH's work laptop also has Virtual Box, and he just uses it to run Linux most of the time.

I would totally be messing around with Linux if I could follow directions from a book, or webpage.

Instead, I keep asking around my area for someone conversant in Unix/Linux to they can actively teach me.

Been using Linux off and on since 2001!

Tried SuSE, Mandrake, (now Mandriva) Gentoo, Vidalinux, and settled with Ubuntu, which is currently the only OS on this computer. :)

I'm an avid Ubuntu user/fanboy, but there is currently no supported sound driver for my laptop (as well as some other issues) so for now its Windows 7.

hehe been a linux fan boy for about 10 years (working with it solely on my computer) and for the past 2-3 years been working as a linux admin, installing ubuntu is as easy as install windows (if not easier as it should install the drivers for you)

Now that this thread has been bumped, I should put in that proper driver support is there for my laptop by default in 10.10, and I'm loving it :D
