Postby shovenose » 14 Jun 2011, 08:54

I've been really trying a couple different versions of Linux and I really like it:

-Ubuntu Server 10.10 (command line, no GUI)
-Kubuntu (GUI)
-Ubuntu (GUI)
-DSL (Damn Small Linux (GUI)

GO FREE STUFF!

Meh i think my Ubuntu 10.04 Cd is scratched...I keep having to install older versions and then update :-( maybe I will order a new one.

I think the reason peoplw dislike Linux is because it doesn't just work. You cant just pop in the install CD and do it! Often it won't install or the drivers will be screwed up...

I had to take a Linux class, and I still use Ubuntu to this day.

Ive tried a decent number of distros. Im quite fond of linux, but being a person who uses programs and bots that wine can't handle. Sadly, I have to return to windows from time to time.
