This city is afraid of me. I have seen its true face. The streets are extended gutters and the gutters are full of blood and when the drains finally scab over, all the vermin will drown. The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout 'Save us!'... and Gon's Balls will whisper 'First... comes... rock!' Hah!  Made you stare at Naruto's Marshmallow!  Pushing the logo off-center to drive TheOcean insane.

If it's just for CAD + photoshop a RAM upgrade should suffice.

My awesome homebrew apps that each are running off of Linux for both systems say otherwise!

You'd be surprised how much shit Linux can run...
And besides, I don't have to wait around for 7 years for its bugs to be patched only to create more bugs so that I have to buy the next version like Windows does. I get bug fixes as they are fixed!

I don't know what these "bugs" are. I presume they're just hardware shortfalls.

I use openSUSE on my main box (I usually use Kubuntu, but the KDE4 implementation was bullshit in 8.04, and I couldn't be bothered to get 8.10, because I'm getting a new computer at Christmas), and Puppy Linux on my old, decrepid laptop which revitalised it. Also, JWM and Rox are extremely feature-packed.

That is sort of true. However, I do have the Wii Linux distro that I am making installed onto an SD card, which is permanently inserted into my Wii, therefore, I have it installed on my Wii. If you had Windows on your PC, someone wouldn't come up to you and say "excuse me, but you don't have Windows installed on your PC, since someone could remove the hard drive at any time and you would no longer have Windows installed". The same sort of thing goes for DS, I used to have a DS that could run homebrew (I don't any more, but meh), and that involves putting it on a CF or SD card.

When making my distro, I compiled a grand total of 3 apps. One of them was a 20-line .c file. The other two were easy and painless to compile. All of the rest are all precompiled .deb packages.

Yeah, but you need an operating system, primarily windows to run. Linux for DS or Wii is just homebrew, which are only needed for doing naughty things. I got a R4 and EZ Flash 3in1 for my DS.

Actually there is a TON of homebrew games and things out there that are perfectly legal, so no, its not for just doing naughty things...

Ever hear of Sonic Robo Blast 2? Being ported to Linux Wii.

Also R4 is horrible, CycloDS Evolution is the way to go for DS homebrew cards.

I don't play my DS at all. R4 were the best when I last played.

I play Pokémon games on my DMG-01.

I'm not currently running a Linux, however sometime this week I'll finally be installing Xubuntu (Ibex, which is the most recent stable version) and it sounds great. I've wanted to change to some sort of Linux for a while due to windows being extremely laggy, resource hogging and just plain low-quality. A friend of mine from a few forums was the person who recommended Xubuntu, he's been running several different Linux machines in the past, and he first installed a Linux OS not long after he turned ten, so he has a lot of experience with them. All I need to do is burn the ISO then run it then I'm off to go with it.

Out of sheer curiosity, what're the odds of a tri-boot system even sustaining itself?

Part.1: Win XP
Part.2: Xubuntu
Part.3: MacOsX (Intel SS3 based)

I know that it's been a week since this thread was last posted in, but I'd like to say that during the early stages of this month I finally got around to installing Xubuntu and I'm loving it so far. I've always liked to use open-source software, and I'd like to look over it's source code, just like I did with Firefox. I rarely understand too much of it; but it's always good to know more about what you're running. One of the best things about it is that I can still run my Windows programs, like Flash and Newgrounds Portal Guard, on it through Wine. I love it so far, and I'm sure that I'll keep on loving how it runs for quite a while at least.

We're on a funny legal area though, we're not entirely legal. =P

Ubuntu for desktop, Debian for servers (CentOS if I need cPanel), Xandros for EeePC. All Debian derived.

sudo apt-get install life

I love using the terminal for everything, personally, I try to use the keyboard as much as possible, therefore speeding up my work as I rarely have to use the mouse. A GUI means I need to use the mouse, a terminal requires a keyboard and nothing more. Apt-get is by far superior to InstallShield and the likes.

Linux fixed an old laptop for me, it works and will continue to work until my mom and sister are done slowly murdering it.

ALSO, ADVERTISING, ADVERTISING, ADVERTISING!

Linux is awesome, but it's not for noobs. I dual-boot openSUSE and Windows 7. Windows 7 is for gaming and doing my VHDL homework. Linux is for everything else. I made the switch a couple months ago and I'm really pleased. Sure, it's a little harder to set up but I don't have to worry about security / slow downs due to spyware, viruses, etc.

Plus, this is just really cool http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FjBuNSIWkJ4&

Let's see your Windows do that.

Try out Brasero. It came with my Linux distro and it's served me well so far.

I don't think that linux is difficult at all- especially with distros such as Ubuntu which make it so easy to install programs (way easier then windows), since Ubuntu has the built in Software centre with access to a multitude of program, and also the package manager for more specific stuff. Also, I heard a rumour that Steam is coming to linux (it was just ported to mac, and both mac and linux are unix-like operating systems, and use OpenGL, which makes the linux port wayy easier to do) so some decent games should be coming to linux, and even now, it has some fun fps'.

Well, I consider Linux to be non-noob friendly because, if you to install something outside of the software centre usually it's a lot harder to do compared to a Windows install (in the case that there isn't a .rpm file).

It also seems like less works right away. I had a lot more trouble getting dual monitors working on Linux whereas in Windows 7 it recognized them right away. I also had issues getting sound to work at first. It just seems to me, (and maybe I encountered more problems then most) that Linux is a little harder to get up and running, and would frustrate a user that was less computer savvy than I am.

I think it depends on the user perspective. General users want OOB. It doesn't matter what it is. Ever see them freak their .... when a BSOD drops? Meh. Went through enough Help Desk Hell years ago on those. Even Windows can be a pain to deal with on installs of certain software. Try installing ClearCase (shudder) and tell me if you have a good time with it. Seriously, the *nix versions are way easier for me to install and use at work.

My kid uses Debian for his laptop right now. And he's an early elementary student. He has no problems with it at all and can even do command-line tasks. It does exactly what he wants. You can't get noobier than little kids and computers. If he can install and function in a Linux environment, it's not that difficult. He actually has tried to get the teacher at school to put Linux on the machines.

It just comes down to personal frustration level and limit, I personally think. In terms of some of the problems you've described, it also depends on the availability of the hardware 'drivers'. Some are forcibly reversed engineered to get working Linux ones thanks to a closed off world. The ones that have native Linux ones have rarely given me a major issue.

I run Ubuntu 10 along with Windows 7, but I must admit, I really only installed it for my operating systems programming class. I prefer Windows 7 mostly because all the software I'd like to run (ONE exception: mythtv) is available for windows, and not all of it is available for other systems. Also, I've never had these issues people complain about like spyware, bugs, performance, etc with any versions since winXP. Even Vista worked perfectly for me. I'll admit ME was the biggest POS to ever disgrace planet Earth, though.

That being said, I have plenty of love for Linux. It's awesome. I just think that Windows is also pretty awesome. (MacOS too)

PS: I saw that you had VHDL homework, David Bowie. Comp E. or E.E.? I'm Comp. E. myself. :D
Also, I had the exact same problem w/ dual monitors on Linux, lol. Man, that was annoying.
