    Mr Curly uses Ubuntu, I use Mint. He's the computer nerd at our house. The last Windows I had was XP.

    I generally use Ubuntu.

    ZORIN is actually UBUNTU made to operate similar to Windows. It uses the UBUNTU software center to install software and other UBUNTU features.

    I used to be a UNIX system administrator years ago until our office went Windows all the way (servers and desktops) so I have basically lost most of my knowledge of how to do a lot of command line stuff and don't feel like spending hours trying to reeducate myself (Unix and Linus uses similar commands from what I remember). So ZORIN seems to be the easiest switchover.

    My desk top died and even wine would not bring it back. So I layed hands on it and cast it out into outer darkness. I now have a lap top but thinking about getting a larger one. I am looking for one that is filled with plenty of POWER.

    I still do run windows but run them in virtual machines on a linux machine. I think windows actually runs better that way.

    Yes, I plan to install Windows via a virtual machine as well. While Linux has a decent amount of sotware that I can use for most tasks and WINE has certainly improved over the past couple of decades to where I can at least run MS Office, there are some programs like my BoxShot3D that I use to make book covers and my PresentationTube software that I use to make my some of my Bible teaching videos that require Windows.

    Indeed VW! I can accomplish everyhing I want to with linux but there a few nifty windows based apps that I like to use from time to time.

    > MS Office

    I use openoffice more often than not and don't really need the MS suite.
