    I don't at the moment, but I have in the past. it is good, just more hassle than it is worth for PC gaming so I stick with Win10.

    If you actually want to do anything with your PC such as play mainstream games, use mainstream applications then it's not the best choice.

    It is a great enterprise operating system though - use it a lot at work.

    Big fan of Ubuntu where I need to use Linux, perfect for lighweight devices and makes serving web, mail or pretty much any other service you can run from it easy and free. Great way to break into Nix for the interested.

    Nix makes the world go round bro, JC's comes to you via Debian ;)

    Just bought myself a cheap older server, going to have a toy around, since this is new to me. Having a play with some different OS, just finish downloading Ubuntu, and will play with it within VMWare.

    If nothing else, it will give me a bit of linux experience for when I turn the Server into a FreeNAS box.
