I've got Ubuntu and Debian on my laptop, but only for programming purposes.

Re: Do you use linux?

I keep downloading Puppy Linux, but I only use it for formatting drives so far. But I did like the last time I tried it for browsing the internet. It comes with a firewall now which is cool.

Re: Do you use linux?

I've got Ubuntu running in Virtual Box. I keep telling myself I'm going to start learning some kind of programming, but I don't really have any other uses for it so far.

Re: Do you use linux?

Yea my laptop dual boots with Win XP and Ubuntu. It's hard to make the switch to Ubuntu full time, particularly because I have MaxMSP on Win XP that I need for a class this semester, as well as Diablo II: LOD - gettin my game on, son!

But I like Ubuntu for programming...

Re: Do you use linux?

Linux: fuck yeah.

I don't do music on that, I know Live too well for that, but for school and programming, it's all I need.

Debian all the way.

I fell in love recently with the Linux Bash command-line shell, and Vim text editor. For programming, it's perfect.

Re: Do you use linux?

I have a Ubuntu installation set-up, basically for use when Windows fails to boot. Tried using it for music a while back, but had too many headaches trying to figure out how to set everything up to work.

If it's broadcom device check google - it knows almost everything.
And it's usual problem, because there are problems with drivers, usually you can set up wi-fi device with ndiswrapper and give him a windows xp/vista/7 driver which works.

you can use linux for gaming it just takes some tweaking and using wine to do it. I've never personally done it but there are a lot of users out there on forums and irc's that are willing to help people. Linux community has tons of nice people in it there are some elitists but there is ignorance where ever you go.

Which I'm not really fond of, I'm really wanting to buy renoise, which can be run on linux yay!! That and I love b complex my friend introduced me to him recently he uses renoise a lot. Great drum N Bass artist.

ya dude I love linux, great thing about it you learn a lot. Which makes you more knowledgeable about computers in general. It can do everything that windows can pretty much. Wish more people would program audio stuff for it. That and gaming, game dev's only make there games available for windows and mac most of the time, which is why games don't run right off the back when poping in a disk. Thats why people use wine to trick your computer into thinking your running windows to run games.

I use Linux as my main OS (though I dualboot Windows 7 for some stuff). Used Ubuntu for a while, switched to Fedora recently.
