I was using Ubuntu for a while, but it's so unsupported I ended up switching back to windows.

My signature was a really funny gif of Red wiggling her eyebrows, but I left it for a few months and it got taken down. Pity.

I roll with Fedora dual booted with Windows 8. I honestly use Windows more often but there are some times when it's better to use Linux for various programming tasks.

I used to have a dual-boot as well, but I just didn't use the Linux boot often enough to make it worthwhile. I used Windows for games and switching back and forth just wasn't worth it. I do run Ubuntu 10.04 LTS on my laptop, though.

I've got Ubuntu 12.04 here. I've managed just fine, and there's an app I can use to read the ebooks on my Kindle!

I use Ubuntu Studio 12.04 for audio production and general web browsing. I'm tempted to go back to Windows at times since things are so hard to understand at times. >.> But in the end, it's totally worth it - the GNU/Linux environment has a surprising amount of high-quality instruments and effects. ZynAddSubFX is a quite versatile additive synthesizer (though I don't know how to use it at all xP) and I can safely say guitarix is the best sounding and most efficient guitar amp sim I've ever used, and I've tried lots of commercial ones (Guitar Rig, Amplitube, Peavey Revalver).

And it's really easy on RAM and CPU usage, which helps especially when your computer is a low-end one.

I love Ubuntu. Too bad I am having a nightmare experience trying to install my Nvidia drivers so that Minecraft works. I dual boot Ubuntu 12.04 and Windows 7, although I mostly use Windows 7 due to my driver issues in Ubuntu.

No you're not. You can dual-boot. You don't even need to be an admin on the computer. *wicked grin*

Right now i'm on Fedora, having switched from Lubuntu (the LXDE Ubuntu) a few months ago. I'm thinking of going quad-boot (Fedora 18, Lubuntu, Windows 7 [the computer's pre-installed OS {not my pick}]) by adding Chromium OS.

BTW, i run Google Chrome 41.0.2272.101 on a Linux system - Ubuntu 14.04. NEW: iPad 4th gen. w/retina.

I suppose it is possible to run Chromium OS on an x86 architecture (the Chromebook Pixel has an i5 processor) but I am unaware of a public download.

I love Linux, but my dad won't let me install it.

You'd have to compile it for x86 afaik

TUX! I can't believe that they have Ubuntu on school computers in Germany? Is it 12.04?
I love penguins. And pangolins. And triceratopses.

I don't know exactly if it's 12.04 or 12.10 … It's different from school to school here. In my school, they only have Ubuntu on the students computers (while the computers in the computer-rooms have windows).
