Many years ago (at home) I did 12-18 month "hiatus" from Windows XP using Ubuntu Linux. This was right before Windows 7 was released. A couple things were tricky to set-up (Brother printer / scanner, Dell DJ music player, etc...) but once it was working it was pretty solid. I could do nearly everything I needed to but it certainly had its quirks. Sometimes simple things with Windows were quite difficult with Linux. Lack of a decent CAD program hurt a bit...

Eventually the Linux quirks drove me to an iMac which still runs wonderfully today.

I keep a Linux Mint PC around for fun. I don't do much with it so I'm not sure how many of the quirks remain.

There are two types of people in this world: those that pronounce GIF with a soft G, and those who do not deserve to speak words, ever.
