    I have used linux for years now, I have switched between gentoo, slackware, and debian. Have done a bit of kernel programming and years of userland programming.

    There are quite a few of us. ;)

    I am a Java coder and I use Ubuntu, which I believe is the best of the distros. Others will disagree with that, but they won't get uppity like the few hardcore Windoze fanboys on here. Though lately I have gotten into Blender ... tried it in Windoze and it ran like crap, switched to Linux and it's awesome.

    thanks :)

    I have installed ubuntu on machines before as well mostly because it 'just works' and the install time is so quick. I also run it in vmware (where I change hardware configs alot) and it picks up the changes without any issues.

    Ubuntu. I'm going to date myself, but I have been using Unix since 1980.

    That is pretty awesome... Do you program or have you always stuck to sysadmin?

    I am using Linux Mint. I think it is just a little better than Ubuntu.

    I'm an old point and click windows user. Wishta was the kicker for me, Not including my wife's wishta machine I have two laptops, one with XP and one with Ubuntu and two desk tops, one Ubuntu and the other is dual boot XP/Ubuntu which I use the Ubuntu much more often now. Once I'm comfortable with Ubuntu/Linux I move all my units over to Ubuntu. I'll Probably load Mint 7 on one just to try it out.
