I've used it exclusively for the past 7 years or so. I started with Debian for about 2 years, used Gentoo for 5, and then have been using Ubuntu for the past number of months on my laptop.

I use linux at school because it loads faster than windows.

I'm not into computers so much.

I'm using Ubuntu. Settled on that distro (like the lingo I throw abouts?) based on Mike's and my friend Karl's urging.

I'm having problems networking with my Dad's Vista computer. That's what I was working on earlier.

I recently installed Fedora 7 on my macbook, over the useless Win XP partition. I like it because I'm a computer geek, and a computer science major, and I want to learn to make a computer my slave (aka do things that most OS's won't let me do).

Windows conditions people to think computers are these crazy mysterious things that crash, and act up from time to time.

MacOS X is stable for hundreds of days at a time, even on a laptop.
my 12" powerbook, 174 days

My linux box, up for 147 days.

My solaris box, 596 days,

Windows is a ToyOS, people that use their computer to play games love windows.

My Windows computer never plays up, because I'm not a noob.

I use other operating systems for reasons other than an inability to maintain a functioning computer. (Such as backtrack linux which is teh ownage)
