Talk about your cell phone woes, your computers, or anything electronic!

I run Linux at home on my PCs. Does that count?

I have no problems with it though, so I can't gripe very much.  :D

My TV setup is all Win7 Media center though, so I can still do that if I wanted to....but I don't.

What flavor? I'm running ubuntu 11.04, but only cause I'm lazy...I've been meaning to sample some others...just have to get around to it.

Mandriva 2010.2 on my laptop and two desktops. Works great for me. I basically started out with Mandrake/Mandriva back in 1999 and have used it a lot since. I had some extended stints of Gentoo (awesome, but time-consuming), Suse, and OS X.


It wasn't long ago I was on Win7 out of laziness and heavy photography needs, but I managed to get back to Linux. I wrote up a brief article on my Linux migration that meets my photography requirements. http://www.photozo.com/article/2011/02/11/my-photography-centric-linux-migration/

At work, our product runs on Windows, Solaris, and RedHat Linux, so I have to support all three. We also use Ubuntu 10.04 as the base of a Eucalyptus cloud. I find RHEL/CentOS to be easier to administer than Ubuntu, but more volatile. FWIW.

Awesome! I used to be a Mandrake user, loved that distro, until they started losing their way at the end (before the merger). I'm using Ubuntu right now primarily because it's what came on my laptop, and I'm really lazy. I'll probably run arch at some point.

The first Mandriva distros were a little off, and then I was running Suse and it treated me quite well. I gotta say what I'm running now works great.

Still miss Gentoo, even with all the compiling (and multiple machines doing the compiling) :)
