    All I see are Windows systems in every computer thread. C'mon Linux guys, post your puters!

    Here are my desktop and laptop.

    I had Linux on my comp for a while, but 3ds Max wouldn't run under Wine, so I uninstalled. (I also ran out of disk space...) 300gb isn't enough :p

    Guess that I am the only one that runs a straight Linux shop. Goodness.

    Actually it should be called GNU/Linux because Linux is just the kernel. Go to http://gnu.org and read about it there. Its great for servers, and if you don't mind tweaking it every once in a while you could set yourself up a really nice desktop.

    funny i saw this.. i built a computer for my fiance. So im installing the OS last night. My fiance is a Navy Intel officer and can't really tell me what she does other than "i spy". So im installing the OS and she says to me. I think i want Unix on here instead.

    And that moment of my life as i stared blankly at her, i realized two things. 1) I have no idea who this woman is during the day. 2) i think this hooker knows more than me and can't eve tell me.

    honestly i'd like to get into linux more. i need a good mentor

    i've tried to make the move several times....

    i always ran into software issues. there's certain things i need to run, and i can't find a linux-ready equiv. (photoshop is one of them. and don't tell me about gimp-- cuz i have it here at work and it fucking sucks)

    second, i have so much crap that i don't want to back up/re-import

    third, the two times i've tried, i couldn't get it too boot up.

    :shrug:

    i'll stick to RH enterprise on the server for now... :)

    lol.. i was in the middle of a reformat/reinstall etc.

    it's generally very very clean with nothing on the desk except the two monitors... i generally reserve a snack tray for the apple laptop if i need to be using it simultaneously and the HP gets used... pretty much never lol

    Ah, ok. My workspace is pretty well set up, but it's just cluttered with receipts, printouts, and CDs on every free inch of desk space.
