    Hello all. After several migration attempts, and after the 'Win 7' experience, I'm ready to go full-time Linux. The only real obstacle is finding alternates to all those proprietary MS apps that you're used to and depend on. I've dabbled in Ubuntu a few times but I'm not so keen on the Ubuntu Unity desktop. So many great distros to choose from - Bodhi and Mint/Cinnamon are my hot favorites. Looking forward to life in Linux. Peace.

    I've used Linux before years ago, but since I changed to a laptop in '08 I was unable to use Linux as my keyboard was not being recognized. So I was stuck being held hostage with Vista. Now I use Mint (and I started with Ubuntu and Unity. Ubuntu is a fine distro w/o Unity and straight Gnome or anything other than Unity.) 17 and a Cinnamon desktop and its here to stay. If I didn't have to sync an iPod I would totally away from Windows all together, so I just use XP in a Virtual Machine to sync it with iTunes.
