So I use Linux for most aspects of my tech life. I only run Windows at school or work but nearly 99% of the time I am running Linux.
Yes, I can listen to music, watch DVDs, and edit Word documents in Linux. Most of my colleagues and students do not even now that the documents I send them were edited with an open source word processor.
The only thing I cannot do is play my favorite games in Linux. That will change in a couple years though as Linux starts to take a chunk out of the market 🙂
Here are my current Linux systems:
- Desktop – Arch Linux
- IBM Thinkpad T60 Laptop – Sidux Linux
- Acer Aspire ONE Netbook – Ubuntu EEE
- Dell Inspiron 8100 Notebook – CentOS
- T-Mobile G1 – Android
- Motorola Rokr e6 – MontaVista
- Nokia N800 Internet Tablet – Maemo
My Dell Inspiron 8100 and Motorola Rokr are currently working at the moment. I need to replace the power supply unit on my Dell. This will be the third replacement. I dropped my Motorola phone a couple weeks ago. It bounced a couple times.
Both units will be running by the end of the month.
So how about you? What do you run Linux, or BSD (that means you Mac guys), on?
