"Over the years, I have seriously considered switching to Linux,
and even tried a few times. The first time I did was around 3 years
ago, and I installed Fedora Linux in dual boot with Windows XP. I
enjoyed using it, but I began to use Windows for more and more
stuff, and used Linux very little. Then, I got a new computer, and
installed Windows XP on it. Everything worked fine, so I continued
to use Windows, until around a year ago I decided to try out Ubuntu
Linux. I installed it, and it worked, but I didn't really use it
very much again. I reformatted the hard drive it was on (BAD
idea... it destroys the boot part for Linux, and I couldn't boot
into Linux, OR Windows). I ended up screwing the boot manager, and
losing windows and Linux. So, I reinstalled Windows since I didn't
have much free time to play around with Windows.
"That brings me up to about a month ago, when I was out of
school for the summer, and decided to install Ubuntu since I had
heard so much good stuff about it..."
