Anyone else running a version of Linux...?

Just curious - Have Fedora Linux install dual boot. I would run Linux full time if it wasn't for the Windows only games I have...

I'm running Ubuntu (Hardy heron) a my only OS right now. I keep thinking about setting up an XP dual boot, but I haven't gotten there yet and I'm not sure how often I'd use it if I did.

Thats the same problem with me but in reverse - I have installed Fedora but I don't use it on the desktop very often.

I do have a Asus EEE901 which does have the latest Ubuntu on it though.

Got the Linux version and wiped the Linux it comes with as it was to simplified for what I'd do...

Nice little laptop - Good for taking on holiday if there is an internet connection where your going so I can keep up with Rich's comics as well as others!

I do have a server at home too with Hardy 8.10 Server on it too. Not too much on the webserver at the moment though!

Slackware 12.1 and KDE on an aging box (aren't they all). For all your windows stuff, run it through wine, it's pretty good these days, though I find most Linux software easier to configure, use, and more powerful in what it can do, usually for free.

Came for the Dungeon Keeper, loving the Linux. Great comic.

And, by the looks of it, DK2 runs under wine with a noCD crack, but DK1 can't. Oh well, I'm more of an openttd player these days, the various classic clones have some of the best gameplay available.
