    Keep this up :rock:

    And soon, you'll wonder what that "other thing" is on your system. By then you realise you have to take one simple step: format the damm thing and go 100% Linux

    Took me months of dual booting to finally do that
    switched from windows to a dual boot in September 2004
    formated my windwos partition and went pure linux March 2005

    Hi all,

    I have yet to give up my dual boot but I am slowly getting there. As soon as I find software replacements for the essentials and get all my hardware working, there will be no doubt in my mind to go pure Linux.

    I am still a dual-booter, have been for 3 years now. The only thing stoppin me goin 100% linux is gaming, but maybe when i finish uni i won't be too bothered about gaming, so i can give up my dual boot for a 100% linux system

    However, i have got Counter strike workin under steam on gentoo

    fortunately, I've never been a big PC gamer. I do all my gaming on console, so I had no reason to keep my windows partition.

    Glad you chosen the right thing. I use only Slackware now but I'm planing to install another distro on my second hard drive soon.

    I'm also a dual booter, but honestly i boot windows less and less often as time goes by. The reason is i (slowly) keep finding Linux equivalents of apps that i used to have to boot windows for.
