Default FRF Linux users

Wondering if any of you out there use a Linux distro on your computer?

Ive been using Linux since 2007 with much success. Started with ubuntu, then pclinuxos, mepis, kubuntu, xubuntu, gentoo, and finally arch in 2008 which has been my main distro since 08/09. Love the rolling release model!

Use openbox and xfce4-panel as my desktop, and a smattering of mostly gtk based apps.

Still have Windows 7 installed on this laptop (came preinstalled) but I havent booted it in years. Fortunately I dont play many games and the two I play work well under wine.

Anyone else?

I keep a copy laying around on disc for when I'm having trouble with a hard drive. Windows 10 works pretty good except I'm still having trouble with drivers not reading properly on some things and the occasional BSOD about every other week...

Linux is cool. Too bad more games don't support it, or I would for sure be more into it.
