I used to use it. It's ok...found it too much of a hassle to use it for everyday use. Stuff like installing a program can sometimes turn into a battle when you need to find dependencies. No good for games. Not all hardware will work with it but more and more work as time goes by. The biggest hardware problem will be if you use a dialup modem. It's a pretty big learning curve if you know nothing about it. Best thing to do is just install it and play around with it.
