Who uses Linux?

I'm just curious to know who uses Linux here ....to do what ....and what version...

I think I'm gonna try OpenSuse to do everything else than music.

Re: Who uses Linux?

I did for some time, used a couple of different distro's. Just got back on Windows though, I really liked Linux a lot, but you just can't beat a couple of Windows applications (Studio One for me) and the integration of everything is way easier. It's all so much easier to use (even though I knew my way around Linux pretty good).

But I would say go for it man

Re: Who uses Linux?

Hi, I use puredyne distro live often. I used to carry it everywhere. It has a drummachine, sequencer and an editor. I use it whenever I'm away, miss music and can't access my pc. I also use backtrack 4 as a tool to recover data, passwords(I don't do illegal hacking, phising and blah blah: after all I'm a good guy). I'll try every FOSS, DISTRO's available online, but those two are my all time favourite. Encourage others to use Free Open Source Softwares. Thank You friend.

Re: Who uses Linux?

I use Carolina Linux (a puppy linux variant) for connecting to the internet and downloading and stuff. It's really smooth and easy as distros go. It also comes with gParted so occasionally I use it to fix or resize my Windows partitions. Also, I use CloneZilla which is Linux for backups.

Re: Who uses Linux?

I've done some tinkering in Linux VMs. Programming in Linux is much more fun than Windows, for sure.
As for distros, I like Mint and Debian. Those have been the most stable for me.

Raspbian on my RPi is fun too.

Re: Who uses Linux?

My laptop got hacked into oblivion and wouldn't start so I had to give it up. But the good news is that I didn't lose any software or files because I transferred them to my main offline computer and since it's a live CD distro that I've been using, I got the whole operating system on CD-ROM ready for next time.

Mint is the most user friendly and stable Linux Distribution for PC's. I've recently tried the Arch Linux Distro and it is also very nice to use..

No way, Mint being the most stable and user friendly distributions is definitely not true. If you are using Mint and like stability why don't you just get Debian? I'm sure you can find a similar desktop environment. Cut out the Canonical crap in between.

Re: Who uses Linux?

I tried a lot of the better Puppy Linux distros and some of the Ubuntu / Puppy crossbreeds and most of them never crashed on me unless I did something really stupid with hardware drivers while it was running. And that was like twice out of many different trials and runs over years.

And to be fair, if I had been using the "Spot" security feature, my recent Linux Puppy distro probably wouldn't have been hacked.

EDIT: Winter 2015 Update...

This is an old thread, so it's not as relevant anymore, but I did eventually create a pretty powerful Ubuntu Studio DAW system with FL Studio and Reaper running on it. But then my system got hacked/tampered with and I dismantled all of it and deleted my posts about it during a period of profound mental frustration.

But it was working just fine with Pulse. I will probaby recreate it later this year, maybe with Lubuntu instead of Ubuntu Studio, just to see if it's lighter and easier to config.
