For the ones that voted yes.
Did you switched back to windows?
i found linux retarded. lack of pc gaming.
I use Linux on my server system, but I haven't switched to it on my desktop or laptop because I like games.
Most people share this experience:
1) Try Linux with low expectations;
2) WTF everything just works! Looks great! And free! And it's so easy to get new applications online!
3) Find a little thing you can do in Windows and can't in Linux, but whatever, it's not major.
4) Find another little thing missing in Linux.
5) ... repeat, repeat.
20) Reinstall pirated Windows 7
i use opensolaris
The only thing I could think of is games.
unfortunately yes at work and embedded on my home and their kvm and managed fiber/Ethernet switches.
OK, let's say you need Adobe Photoshop. What do you do? Wine? That's not a serious solution for reliable production.
GIMP, I guess, but I'm not a professional image manipulator.
I use it all the time at work.
We had to use it in college. I didn't appreciate it.
I really liked it, but I switched back so I could play games.
i love gimp,its free and that's as good as photoshop
I'm using Fedora which is really nice. Only reason I like Linux is that there are alot more open source based softwares, I find it hard to find really good and working freeware solutions to expensive softwares in Windows and Mac. I don't know if it's just me having this problem but I've searched quite alot over the internet and found only more open source and good, updateable freeware for Linux/Unix.
Download them faggot
I would use Linux if it would support my gaming habits.
Obviously if you can use a phone, you've used linux. (unless its a winblows phone)
Or a non smartphone, or an iPhone (LOL).
Enjoy your craps
Sure did. Used Ubuntu last summer. It was interesting. Considering getting a dual-boot Windows 7/Ubuntu this fall.
I used to use unix on DEC's in the 70's and 80's, but i havent touched it for decades. I seem to remember i originally encountered it on an 11/780 in about '78
The funnest part of unix is the command line text editor VI. Its not a WYSIWYG editor its YAFINYBWGGI (you asked for it, now you're bloody well going to get it). A fun game in Vi was to type your name in at the command prompt , then try and work out what it just did to your program. Its was savage and unforgiving, one misplaced full stop could wipe out months of work. Unix and Vi was not for wimps.
My hero at the time was Seymour Cray. he toggled in the boot loader for the first Cray supercomputer directly into the machine, one word at a time, in binary, using the toggle switches on the front panel. This was epic, and instantly qualified him for godlike status. I also use dto know a PDP-8 operator called Anne who had a speaker wired to the databus and could tell you what the machine was doing just by listening to it.
For personal use, absolutely not. Anyone that does is either dirt cheap, piss poor, a commie, or a fanatic. When it comes to servers however, it's the best there is.
Linux is a shitty program, why is there even a thread for this, DAMMIT OP!
Had on/off torrid affair with linux, for certain things it is all good, but its like learning to write left handed if you are born to do it right handed. Somewhat difficult at times. I like the open, community, free side of it, reminds me of what san fran must have been like in the 60's. But then hunting down codecs, and opening tarballs, and general faffing about just to get say you-tube to run was pretty testing. Games side of it was also a downer. But for stability, speed of startup, and general basic net use it was sweet as. I will go back for another try by xmas, once i sort out proper connection.
But what would life be if we didn't give ourselves little challenges?
rm -rf at the root was always good for a laugh, but fallible.
find . -name '*.*' -print0 | xargs -0 rm was the clever b/tards version.
Then there came the Plan 9 Bunny....................
My father is a linuxfag
You and your father are much alike.
