I'm glad to have finally done it. I've been running Ubuntu off of a liveCD the passed few weeks, along with Debian and BackTrack2 in order to see which one flows best with me (Note to other malicious users who want to have a good distro: Slackware is NOT easy to use).
Yesterday, I formatted Vista and all files off of my drive, and installed Ubuntu 7.10 onto my system. The only thing I'm missing is my Wacom Bamboo Fun tablet at the moment (another side note here, there's a linuxwacom package users can download, but it's hardly functional in my case, it seems).
Now you may be asking yourself why it is that I am announcing I switched to linux. The answer in itself is simple. With my switch to linux, I have learned that running BYOND via WINE's latest build (and all others) is nearly impossible for new users to linux builds. That being said, I'll be renewing the BYOND Linux guild's membership within the next few weeks in order to further the linux user oriented help according to BYOND.
Furthermore, I have to preach how simply amazing linux is to use. I can do anything with this (well, aside from running BYOND), that I ever did with Windows Vista, AND I actually get to use my perl programs, instead of having them without them not running on my native OS.
That's all for now. Tata. ;D
