One year using Linux
I just want to say that I am really happy I found the bravery in my heart to get rid of Windows (it's one year already!!) and use only Linux. I have now two distros on my pc: Ubuntu 12.10 and Linux Mint. I like alot Mint: it feels less heavy than Ubuntu.....
Anyway, it's great to be part of this fantastic community, whose ideals I always admired but never had the 'gut' to be a penguin. I used Windows since WIndows 3.1 to Windows XP, then, one day.....
Congratulations... it feels kind of good to break yourself free from being chained to Windows, doesn't it? :cool:

But even in the most frustrating moments, when something just seemed it would never work, I never thought "I miss Windows". Never.

Congrats and hope you keep enjoying Linux. I'm glad that you didn't give up in the early days, because once you understand how things work, its a very good operating system that you can customise and personalise to your own needs.
Congratulations on your milestone.
