Are you currently using GNU/Linux as a desktop operating system?

Yes, and have used it exclusively since 2001 on my own systems.

Which is your favorite distribution of GNU/Linux for the desktop?


What interests you most in using GNU/Linux as a desktop OS?

Like to use open source software, much prefer x windows to ms windows. Multiple desktop workspaces is something I have grown so used to that I hate using anything that lacks them.


Hi there. I've been writing software since the 80's (assembly languge => c => c++ => => perl => python with a little awk along the way). Use linux exclusively on my own computers, and preferentially at work.
