Who is using Ubuntu?

This past spring, my 4 year old dell laptop was taking a turn for the worst...slowing down, freezing up, you name it and it was happening. With no money or desire to purchase a new laptop, my boyfriend (an Ubuntu lover himself) suggested I try Ubuntu on a dual-boot with my current windows version. After a day of the trial, I was pleased to say goodbye to windows! My laptop has a new spring in its step and is running better than ever. I don't think I could ever go back to windows.

I originally downloaded Ubuntu to use as an alternative to Windows Vista. I then came to rely on my Ubuntu Feisty Fawn to do all of my computing due to Vista's instability. Ubuntu has been fun to learn. I learn about some of the more advanced Linux functions I can use, but I chose Ubuntu as my platform because it is so easy to use/install. Ubuntu makes an awesome and stable system out of the box.
Ubuntu has also opened me up to a lot of free software. I continue to maintain Windows XP on my computer, and when I was setting up my XP desktop, I realized that after using Linux 99 per cent of the applications I was using on XP were freeware, and most of that open source. Ubuntu is an excellent alternative to the grating confines of Windows, and from an advanced standpoint a lot more fun to work with than Mac OS X. Ubuntu is one of my favorite OS and one that I default to when setting up a new system.
MysteryFCM, Nothing atm ..... got a broken arm/hand
I've been playing with Linux and Ubuntu on and off for a few years, and for now at least, constsantly come back to Windows as I find it a little too frustrating (well, that and I miss Outlook, along with the various programs and browser extensions I've written for Avant).
I've documented alot of my experiences both on forums, and in my old newsletter (I'll not link to them - just search for "MysteryFCM + Linux" ;o)), but more recently, I installed Ubuntu using Wubi, and whilst I don't use it often, it does give me the chance to play with it without having to load the live CD (pretty important considering my lappys CD drive is dead), and so far, thanks to help from Scotts Newsletter forums, I've been able to solve a couple issues, so may be moving it to a more permanent partition.
