Has Ubuntu Replaced Windows on Your Box?

I have not used Windows on my machine since the fall of 2004. SP2 for XP
caused a blue screen about every day because it broke the drivers. So it
was either not install SP2 and get cracked (very bad), put up with the
blue screen until better drivers came out (bad, and it took about a
year to fix all of the drivers!), or find some other solution. I did
not want to but a new computer that had hardware that was
SP2-compatible out of the box, so I decided to play with Linux. I liked
it and it's been running on my computer ever since. However, I do have
XP installed safely away in a VMWare image in case I need to use it,
which is actually rather infrequently.
