Linux Operating System

Does anyone use the Linux Operating System on their computer? I was considering of converting my laptop to this system to try it out. :computer:

I ran it on my PS3 for awhile, but there is much tweaking to it, and it got old real quick. (Since I really don't know alot about it) Don't know if it's any easier on a PC but might be worth messing with.

If you just want to try it out, try one of their bootable OSs. Knoppix or whoppix. Just download and burn the image to a blank cd using imgburn. That will give you an idea of what to expect when using linux. Ubuntu is becoming very popular. I run a dual boot on my laptop using ubuntu and xp pro. Its fun to get all of your drivers to work....especially wireless depending on your laptop.
