This is a bit of a companion piece to my Windows 10 ahem - rant.

I've played around with linux's for years but now that Windows 10 has arrived I've switched all my day to day stuff to Linux Mint.

Anyone else here run linux as their day to day OS?

My phone runs iOS and my car runs QNX, both variants of Unix which is what Linux is, so yes... sort of. Wink

(QNX even adheres to the LINUX POSIX standards).

Use Ubuntu for server but for home OS I mostly use Windows 8. I still keep Ubuntu and OpenSuse on another partition but mostly for experimentation. I 'm planning to also get HelenOS and MINIX.
