Nice find, I'll have to register my two machines later. I love Linux, but I also like whatever gets the job done, so I dual boot both my Laptop and my Custom PC with Linux Mint and Windows.
I will say though, I have a ton more respect for Linux than I do Windows.

Interesting question if we talk about the sucess of Linux on private computers:
Do you count ChromeOS as Linux?
Based on the Linux Kernel but not really open source.
I think that could possibly become a signifcant factor looking at the rising sucess of Chromebooks in the states.

I imagine you can register anything which runs Linux, including android devices. Anything powered by the Linux kernel is acceptable!
Windows assumes the user is an idiot... Linux DEMANDS Proof!

Only one for now (just registered, so may take some time)

I don't count my android devices.

I couldn't remember my first registration number, so re registered, a while ago, when this came up again in another forum,  my 2nd reg. no. is 544658, & I think I had about 6 machines registered at that time 8) .
Linux since 1999, & now OpenBSD.

I'm proud to count myself as a full time linux user from now on. I'm installing linux on my wife's computer now, and I'll be talking about it with my son later.

I can official say that I can be counted as a full time Linux user, I was a windows user since win 95 and I just got tired of always having to buy anti viruses and all that BS. so I heard about linux few years ago from a dear friend and I dabbled in it off and on and now here I am. However I do miss Windows 7 but not to the point of going back having to go through that headache again.

I never once thought of me as a "refugee", but it does make sense in a way, having fled from the proprietary horrors of Windows and government funded spying applications.

Oh man, here we go. The ticker is about to go off the charts with what im about to submit lol. Well, once the webpage finally loads :)
  i have 10 pc's and laptops actually running right now, i just have to figure out how to get linux onto a few of them. For example: my old ibm thinkpad, and a gateway 200 with the ooolllllddd pentium with mx tech lol.... or the one with the pentium 3! sheesh... nostalgia.

Anyway, thank you Spatry for sharing this!

What the heck, that link takes me to some tranny blog as far as I can tell. I don't have enough German to wade through it. Is there some secret here I am missing or has the original page bee hijacked. It seems to be on an auto link from the original page.
