I use Windows.

When I need/ want to use Linux I use Fedora.

Mark Shuttleworth does.

'Master race' kek. This is an actual OpenSUSE developer.

Xubuntu just because Xfce dwm

>>45407719
Every distro has at least one developer that looks like that or worse.

I tried when I got my x201.
Using Windows 10 on it now.
>>
>>45407563
Windows 7 and Kubuntu dual-boot
>>
>>45407732
I use xubuntu for the lightness. Reminds me of how ubuntu was distributed years ago. Having debian base seems key for easy installation of packages on linux.
>>
>>45407739
Maybe but the average SUSE employee looks like this. Look up some photos from OpenSUSE conferences.

Instead of developing shitty software, going into space, and doing fuck else, Shuttleworth should be working on reinstalling apartheid in his shitty country.

what the fuck does it matter what they look like? they could have sloth from the fucking Goonies as a dev for all I care, as long as they put out a good product, which they do, that all I care about

I'm on manjaro, the (for better or worse) ubuntu of Arch based distros. I use the unstable branch, just because I like to try to stay as close to arch as possible.

Yes.

Ubuntu is literally the only good distro which is out.
>>
>>45407828
It matters to some. Doesn't make Novell look like a very professional company. It's why most cooperations choose Red Hat over SUSE.

Yes, w3rks fine on my machine.

I use.

The only distro that does not freeze when I change brightness of my shitty dell laptop.

it has a couple hiccups but I like it

Also, Novell doesn't own Suse anymore

>>45407563
Ubuntu is great for making your start in the linux world, it sorta holds your hand and has a easier learning curve. Once you become proficient with ubuntu you can move to more technical distros such as debian, arch, gentoo etc.

im on windows 7, but i want to try ubuntu.

how can i dualboot?

I hear Google is pretty useful.

>>45409359
i always hear its botnet by you guys and shouldnt be used
>>
>>45409336
Ubuntu is pretty straightforward in installation. It will ask if you want to dualboot or format your HD. It even asks you how much of HD you want to give to each OS.

i use mint so its almost ubuntu, right?

Does unity allow you to hide that dock

Just make a partition and install ubuntu on that partition

>>
>>45411567
yes
make sure choose the empty space and not erase the windows partition
>>
>>45407563

Yup. I prefer it to other distros due to the PPA's (such as zfsonlinux, Numix theme), and because I'm used to Debian package management. Also the LTS release cycle suites me.

I don't use Unity though. I install from the mini CD and use Gnome Flashback w/ Compiz. I use a few gsettings tweaks to make everything the way I like it before installing Numix. Also compiz-settings-manager is sweet (set shortcuts for workspaces, enable alt-tab, etc).
>>
>>45407563
I use Kubuntu on my gaymen rig. I'm not 100% sure but I think that makes me a top-tier faggot. I don't care I still like it. I also use wingdings 7 on my school/general laptop

It's a mouse.

Yes, but why?

I hope you're talking about Gnome 2

looks like docky
>>
on our family computer which multiple people use, i installed ubuntu because people kept clicking on ads and popups. Ever since then i never heard anyone complain about the machine running slow or anything lol. Anyways they never complained about the switch either since all they do is browse the web on firefox.
>>
>>45407732
Just noticed you have two trash bins
>>
>>45407563
Almost. I use Debian Testing with the E19 DE.

I prefer rolling release over Ubuntu or Debian Stable's release cycle, and I've had the occasional broken/fucked up package back when I used Arch. So far Debian Testing is perfect for me.
>>
Yes, some people do.
>>
Installed Ubuntu on my gaming rig. Now its a work rig.

>>45411546
yes

>Once you become proficient with ubuntu you can move to more technical distros such as debian, arch, gentoo etc.
I did this. After that I sort of got tired of the shitty font rendering and having to do shit that shouldn't have to do so out of laziness and OCD I switched back to Ubuntu. I love Red Hat based distro's though and I keep them on my servers.
>>
I use Ubuntu just for the font rendering and because Unity is pleasant to work with if you get to know it. I'm getting tired of Canonical not updating their shit so I might go back to debian, because i hear debian's font rendering isn't that bad.
>>
>>45407739
Its called docky, should be in the software centre.

A mouse, obviously, for all kinds of reasons like world domination and monsters and such.

That's like a double decker of botnet.

I do. And as this guy says >>45408395 I started muh freedomz life with it. I'll think about moving on to Debian sometime in the future. It all depends if it supports my laptop as good as Ubuntu did, I guess.

sudo apt-get update-grub

gnome is definitely my new favorite DE. It used to be pretty shit and it still doesn't work that well on old hardware but ever since I got a new computer nothing beats it.
I used to use debian and arch and shit but I ended up coming back to ubuntu because I like to spend less time fucking around with stupid shit like fonts and drivers that should just work.
>>
>>45407563
I use Xubuntu because it just werks.
It's also using lightweight software and it's easy to rice
>>
>>45408395
Or you can spend your time doing something less trivial with your life. Like enjoying yourself.
>>
>>45407563
I use Debian Sid and Gentoo partitions to rice out and post in Desktawp treads.

>I use Ubuntu on another that I'd like to never fuck up.
>>
>>45408395
>"more technical distros"
If you really wanted to understand how linux worked, you'd be either reading a book on operating systems or making your own linux flavour, not typing up make and make install and editing cflags.

The purpose of computation is automation. Your computer is just another x86-64 or ARM machine, it doesn't need coddling.

I do, but I'm not a big fan of Unity.
Only with GNU/Linux can I keep an OS on a USB hard drive and boot from it on any other computer and know it will just work.

I only use Mint Mate (basically Ubuntu without Unity). I quickly test other distro, but I was impressed with Bodhi

my smb/tekkit/plex box runs mint XFCE if that counts

>>45414955
Why in the absolute fuck would that count?
>>
>>45408004
most of the corporations in Europe choose Ubuntu... suse is shit
>>
>>45414969
because it still uses the ubuntu repositories for alot of things

my school note taking laptop also runs mint xfce
>>
>>45407563

I do, my HTPC runs XBMC on it
>>
>>45409438

I use XP so thats almost Ubuntu, right?
>>
>>45407563

I do, but mostly because I'm new to it and reading books about it, so I want everything to be exactly for easy learning.
Also hate unity what a piece of shit, I find Cinnamon to be way better.
>>
I use Xubuntu.
