I have been using tripple boot on my pc. I use windows 98, xp and LINUX on my PC. I use Linux for online related work. As it is great operating system for the people who spend most of their time online. It keeps you out of reach of the deadly viruses Wonderfull, without any antivirus.

currently i use xp and vista and installed PCLINUXOS virtaully,so i dont have to modify partition. UBUNTU is good os but doesnt have good hardware support, PCLINUX even supports by pentium 2 system, but no have installed it virtually. i mainly use PCLINUXOS for programing,which i dont think is even possible in UBUNTU.

I'm using Ubuntu right now and I'm loving it. I have it dual-booted with WinXP though I use Ubuntu more frequently now.

I use Linux instead of Windows, even though I prefer using windows. It's pretty weird, but I just use Ubuntu. I love it as well. Windows is more user friendly and that's why there's a lot more people who prefer it, only those intelligent enough are the ones that use Linux ;-)

i use linux (the ubuntu distro) on the main pc here. On my tablet i'm still damned to use vista :( because of the handwriting recognition i need in dutch. I find linux much nicer then any windows platform. it is easy in use, much faster (if you find the right drivers for your hardware), and doesn't eat up all your pc-resources :p . Windows is a real pc-killer, it takes lots of time to keep your system clean in comparison with linux. I've only tried just a few distro's though, Redhat, Mandrake (Mandriva now), Susex and ubuntu (and kubuntu). Ubuntu is the most user-friendly for as far as i can tell. Small and fast and already packed with the most common drivers.

I have just upgraded my computer which runs Windows XP, and my older computer i decided to try Linux. I started with Ubuntu (Hardy Heron) but it ran too slow, and appeared to be a bit buggy, so undettered I tried PCLinux 2007 (PCLos) and what a breath of fresh air that is. It is so easy to use, without the problems of viruses when surfing. It runs faster than when the computer was running windows XP. The only gripe I have, and it doesn't really affect me but my children, is that there isn't a good supply of games, especially the Sims game. The games available, vary in quality and there are some very good commercial type games out there and I know that you can get emulators or dual boot your system but this sort of defeats the object of going over to Linux. If some of the larger Games companies would allow developers to port some of the games over to Linux, lets face it they make enough out of the cosole and PC market, then this would rectify the current shortage.

No, not me! I think that is way too complicated for me. I still have lots of things to learn in Windows, I don't want to increase my problems by using Linux. However, as to the others who usually uses Linux, they say it is not too hard. You are lucky though,you are good in both worlds.
