Default Who here uses linux?

Okay. I'll be the first to say it. I hate windows. I have been trying everything to get rid of it on all my computers, so I use linux and mac. In an earlier post, I mentioned linux, and a few people sorta got weird about it. So I'm wondering how many people here use linux, and how many use windows.

Never touched Linux.

No, wait, that's not correct. I booted up an Ubuntu CD, once.

See. This is what I am talking about. I'm sure if you were to try it out for real, you would really like it.

I ran Ubuntu for a while, and Red Hat, SuSE, DSL (Dam Small Linux), PCLOS, Debian, FreeBSD (Unix based, not really Linux.) In the past week I've run Vista, XP, Win 7. Looks like I'll be running Win 7 for a while, but you never know, I may have to try Ubuntu 64 bit just to see how it does on my new system.

YAY!!!
GO LINUX!!!!!
Personally, I would go with debian. It seems to be a lot more stable.

Yeah, but you have to admit that Ubuntu is a quick easy install. Oh, I forgot Knoppix, not just the live disk, I ran it on the hard drive for several months.
