Hey, new user here, was wondering what everybody's favourite OS is?
I personally love Linux, i'm currently running Satanic Ubuntu 666.8
Wish I knew how to use Backtrack
So yeah, what does everybody like to use?
I quite like Fedora (Linux). I would use any old machine and use Linux, but I need Photoshop, Bridge and Illustrator for my studies/work, and WINE hasn't quite got them down yet. Adobe should make Linux versions of their software, but that's another issue >.>
I hate Vista and there's no way I'm even gonna bother trying to run Windows 7 on this machine, maybe if I get an upgrade soon, as planned; but until then I'm stickin' with XP
As far as open source stuff, I can't be arsed working out Linux or anything else, seems like too much stuffing around for me (I know, I should).
Different distros are easier or harder to get the hang of. If you're keen, you could try Ubuntu. It's pretty easy, even if it is ugly, and there's lots of support online (Google whatever problem you're having, and chances are you can find a solution).
On my most used box I'm currently using Ubuntu Karmic Koala.
Here is a customary screen shot.
(In the tradition of a thread on the Melb forum a number of years ago on taking screen shots of our desktops...)
I use Linux pretty much exclusively; Gentoo on desktop and main laptop, Debian on servers. Also involved in the Ubuntu Australia Team, and have written my own OS for no other reason than I felt like it.
The idea that laws decide what is right or wrong is mistaken in general. Laws are, at their best, an attempt to achieve justice; to say that laws define justice or ethical conduct is turning things upside down.
