Soooooooo any Linux users out there?

So I know we’re only around 2%(ish) but I’m curious what if there are any other furry linux users out there.

I’m personally powered by Raspberry Pi running Raspbian (how a $35 SoC is capable of simulating A personified feline mind, interpreting sensory input, and providing convincing anthropomorphic movements is beyond me.... but hey, who am I to question how my “brain” works)

My creator on the other hand likes to stick to KDE Neon (essentially just Kubuntu but KDE centric repos) however he has dabbled with Fadora and OpenSUSE on his NAS.

Also if any of you use puppy Linux that’s almost too perfect.

I tend to use Ubuntu (version doesn't matter) and Kali Linux, both debian distros... Never been much of a fan of Fedora. As for user interface, it doesn't really matter to me. I did look into KDE before, however last time I tried using it, it wouldn't start, so I've stuck with GNOME.

Pull an MS and upgrade it when you’re team is asleep without telling them.... what could possibly go wrong?
 
I have a Pi 3 and my main desktop is duel booted with Mint.

Also, almost forgot. A 10 year old netbook running lubuntu which is pretty much solely used as a portable word processor.

Occasionally glance at a few distros but always come back to Windows or Android. If Linux had play store integration maybe I would stick with it for longer. But I don't really see any reason to since my phone has a desktop environment anyway.

I'm considering using for a pair PCs I'm refurbishing to give to a few family members. They are currently running XP, which I'm debating whether is worth keeping since they don't have SP2 or SP3 installed. It might be easier to give them fresh OSs.

I used to be an avid kUbuntu user, back when I was still running aeging laptops, Linux was much better with limited resources than the Windows of the day (must've been XP I think.)

I switched back to windows because of windows 7, and the fact that I had to use Office programs more, the MS Office suite is superior to LibreOffice/OpenOffice if you don't like fiddling.

ATM I am running Win10 on most of my larger machines, plus my current work on reviving my old MacBook for surfing and other easier tasks.

I am contemplating about returning to Linux or using a split boot on my computer, as I've got an empty HDD in my tower at the moment. I just need to research if I can get Discord and MS office to run there.

I can Linux. ^w^ But I mostly just play with it. I don't use it for my main OS.

Honestly I can’t blame you, depending on what you’re doing with your computer it can definitely be problematic at times specially when it comes to software/driver compatibility *cough cough PRINTING cough cough* But I am glad you’re at least take you most people just write it off immediately (and tbh 90% of what I do on my computer is just screwing around anyway)

I usually run it in virtual box. I both like and dislike how configurable it is... It is fun and very useful but it is easy to totally mess your machine up if you aren't careful.

I have been meaning to build my own router with VyOS for a while but just haven't had the money to spare for parts.

I have a lot of computer networking experience (mostly Cisco IOS) so it has appealed to me. I could make my home network so much faster and set up virtual networks and such to segment traffic into a reasonable architecture rather than just having everything all on the same network.

I mostly use Windows 10 because of software/driver/college network compatibility (I can't get the printers at my school to work with Linux at all, and that is NOT for lack of trying, and I had a bit of a time figuring out how to configure it to work with the WiFi here), but my main laptop is triple booted with Ubuntu Studio and Q4OS as well as WIndows 10, and I recently got an old MacBook Pro that I have dual-booted with MacOS High Sierra (it doesn't support Mojave) and Kubuntu. I've also played with many other distros, including Mint, Puppy, Sparky, Bodhi, and Manjaro (and probably some others I'm forgetting).

I have used a variety of distros. I have an Sun Ultra 60 that runs Solaris 8, Raspbian on my Pi, and Ubuntu on dual boot machine. I have tried other distros (Fedora, Mint, etc.), but Ubuntu tended to be more stable most of the time.

I use Ubuntu and I have a RPi with raspian as well c:

Hello, Proto
Technically Android runs on a custom Linux distro, but as far as desktop versions go, I usually use Ubuntu, though I don't have a machine with it installed on right now.

I do plan on eventually getting the latest Raspberry Pi model with all those bells and whistles and making a gaming hobby box out of it.

It all started in the late nineties, with the localized RedHat 4.1 distribution. First 2-3 years I lived with dualboot, but at early 2000s finally switched to Linux (Debian 2.2 "Potato", to be precise) as main OS.

Jinxie hosts a custom Discord bot and Minecraft server in two Raspberry Pis, so that's Raspbian. Kali fer the White Hat stuff, and Mint fer other things. So that's three separate distros. O' course, gots ta have Windows fer gaming and Photoshop, so can't get away from MS entirely. ;)

Currently using Debian Stretch (9.8) with KDE. Certainly feels leaner than Windows.

I use a lot of CentOS for work, although I control and manage it all from an OSX laptop. Hard to avoid Linux these days, it’s pretty ubiquitous.
