A lot of people try to 'kick' the Windows habbit, how successful are you? It's been a few weeks since i logged in, but i only ever use Windows at home from some games and iTunes.

**builds a fire under game developers to follow Epic's lead and support Linux natively**

I have to admit I still use Windows (XP Pro +SP1) on my laptop, though I got rid of Internet Explorer, Outlook Express, and Microsoft Office for Mozilla Firefox, Thunderbird, and (respectively). This summer when I have more time and am doing a bit less traveling I'll work on hacking all my gadgets (camera, webcam, PDA, etc.) and getting my laptop on the penguin too.

EDIT: Actually, I gave that some thought, and what I'm likely to do is still run a small, cheap Windows box somewhere on my network, and just use a utility like VNC or rdesktop to login to it whenever I need to 'borrow' Windows' functionality. I looked into it online and the hardware cost should be right around US $300 for that.
