So I have been using Linux Mint 9 now for 3 or maybe 4 weeks solid. I haven't touched my windows xp install the whole time. I don't miss windows to much. Aside form the games i enjoy playing like Mass Effect 1&2, Dragon Age Orgins, and Civilation 3 i really got sick of the slow down windows causes in my machine. It has always been tat way and i just accept it. Aside from the games every program i use in windows is open source.
I have always been a big fan of Linux and i have used various distributions going on 12 years. I started with SuSE than moved to mandrake than to Lindows (or what ever it was renamed to) and even to Slackware. Back in

The rug. Then you're trapped in your lovely nest, and the things you used to own, now they own you."
