Wow this is a cool thing happened to me in all the years my story begins with a little 14 year old boy of discovering whar OS were. In a MS driven India hearing the word linux was almost rare but once when as rare as a diamond in a sand. I saw a redhat version 3 in my friends house it looked different from windows and I didn't know what was that . I asked my friend who had it ( of course an engineering student working on linux to complete his 4th sem portion :D) he said it was linux i asked him could he install it for me all he said was red-hat is pretty simple try for yourself ( he was busy with his exams then ) I deleted my d drive of windows partion and installed red-hat and boom lilo failed to boot ( that was my fault didn't use grub ) 2,3,4,5 time i got it it worked fine but i didn't know what to do coz all I knew was to try installing new windows and play games those days.
My linux was sent into hibernation for quite a few years ( meaning I hardly used it ) and once when elder bro ( now he is Singapore) told me what was piracy and how its affecting our daily routine of comp use i felt there was something wrong in using pirated windows why not opt something for free ! There comes one of the big daddy debian into my life ( I ordered a debian cd they sent me 21 cd's now I realize those cd's are repo's :D ) I was running with a 128 mb ram ( U must have realized how slow it would be :D ) father pulled the plug off linux saying piracy is better than slow system.
everything came into place when my father was given a hp notebook he gave me the old system saying that we will sell it after I break this thing :D But the process of creating a new face for my system using ubuntu is miraculous gosh with 2gb ram and 200 gb hard disk what do u need now I run a home server sharing what ever I need with my friends and the funny part running is an envious father seeing u switch between vista and ubuntu using seamless windows of vbox is priceless

I've switched to Ubuntu being sick of the general quality and unstability of Microsoft products, unescapable vendor lock-in and absence of ethics of Microsoft and Apple.
With Ubuntu and free software in general, I have found what I needed and thought was lacking in computing : humanity and freedom.
My passion in computing has come back, and I can now say that if I earn my living being a computer tech, it is thanks to Free software like Ubuntu.
Have been an Ubuntu user for two and one half years and haven't looked back. Ubuntu looks great, runs well and the stability and dependability is second to none. My daughter installed here own version by herself and I run Ubuntu on my laptop. I use my laptop for work (internet, Office software, e-mail, printing to network printer, etc.) and at home for the regular stuff like bills, e-mail and chatting with friends and family. Ubuntu hasn't crashed once or caused us to reinstall due to virus, trojan or spamware. There is what seems like an endless list of software available at the click of the mouse that helps use with our computing needs.
The look and feel of Ubuntu is levels above what we can find in Windows and you can turn on the eye candy and not get a performance hit on your processor. The PC still runs crisp and snappy with the visual effects on and it is nothing that you can see on Windows.
Give Ubuntu a spin from a Live CD, or a CD that contains the entire operating system, and it can run from the CD drive without installing anything.
Ubuntu, the future of computing.
