Should be a community wiki?

@kmark937: Community Wiki means that it edited by anyone. This one is not something that the entire community needs to be editing.

I use Linux almost every day. It is perfect if you are interested in creating document and running a web browser. It's not great at video editing, and it's not that great at gaming. So for what I need it for, it works fine.

Ubuntu is all I use. There are some problems which Windoze doesn't have, but the positives outweigh the negatives by far. It's just a better world.

I am attempting to make a Linux switch. In the past, I have had nothing but problems with Linux. I didn't want to use the command line, troubleshooting errors was pain, and didn't see much point. I just recently went through like a three day projects of troubleshooting errors with GRUB and the MBR. It got screwed up because GRUB legacy (0.97) and GRUB 2 were installed at the same time somehow. Th,e weird thing was that legacy was insalled on my sda drive, which was wiped and unallocated. I would of just wiped both drives if I didn't have all my music on my sdb drive. I solved the problem by chrooting the grub, and then installing Ubuntu on the second HDD (sda) which fixed the GRUB and MBR. Now I have yet to fix my no sound problem in Ubuntu, but I think its because I have on-board audio and not a sound card.

I told you this story because of a couple reasons. In the past, I have found Linux fast, but always having problems and errors. After going through that process, strangely it has made me like Linux more. I now find it easy to scan through long forum guides and pasting commands in the command line and have just taken a liking for it. I might make a full switch from Windows, but we will see.

I use linux, but not all the time. Having to record and edit Chris Pirllo videos requires at least a Windows machine. I usually use a linux in a virtual machine.

Unless you are talking about the Google netbook.

I use windows mostly, though I use Linux from time to time to do certain task because of security & encryption features (Installation required)...

The Linux Live CD is really great for anonymity and safer browsing (with use of proxy servers)...

At least you don't have to worry about getting a virus or hacked while in the Live CD.. =D

Windows has better Proprietary software & can use most games, and that's pretty much the bottom line...

These are the reasons why I prefer using both Windows & Linux both...

I use Linux. Not as often as Windows but I do have it in a VM.

I don't. Too much hassle to be bothered with. The only time I have ever used it, was when I refused to use Vista anymore, and didn't have enough for Windows 7. Since I've gotten my Mac and Windows 7, I haven't seen any use for it.
