Yes to that. I'm dual-booting XP Pro and Ubuntu Hardy Heron on my laptop, it's the best decision I've ever made... besides getting that piercing in my p-- nevermind. I don't plan on switching to Vista until I really have to because hardware and software is no longer compatible with XP. Kinda like how my dad stuck with Windows NT 4 until 2 years ago and now runs Win2k.

Try it out. If you get all the bells and whistles working on it, you will not go back to windows for anything other than video games.

I still use XP only because I the software to connect to my school's network will not work on linux. If I did not have to use that software to connect to the internet, I would go back to Linux no questions asked. I have linux on my laptop which I use when I go home for the weekends.

The current computer I have would die a slow death if i ran vista on it. It sometimes has trouble running smoothly with all the crap my school made me put on it.

My school has this crap where you have to be up-to-date with security patches and such if you're using windows xp or vista. Linux connects with no questions asked, gotta love it. And thankfully the tech guy actually knew what I was asking, I was afraid I'd get one of the people in tech support that gets all their answers from a knowledge database.
