You should. Maybe even virtualized, or the LiveDVD.

I have tried a different Linux edition before, but it was via a Live CD, and I in the end decided it wasn't for me. But I have kept the iso and CD just in case I ever change my mind in the near future....

If I were to abandon Windows totally and switch to using Linux, (which will never happen with me of course), it would have to be a distro which supports Beryl/Compiz desktop fxs as I am mad about special effects! :P

I tried to install FreeBSD once, but something happened and I never got it done right. I think some day I'd like to give it another go.

How do you like 9.04?

Its not bad, I like the way they included the New Wave theme from GnomeLook.org, but its not the best version of the theme, some apps wind up having menus with dark grey text on a black background. Still haven't gotten that equaliser though, guess thats on the wishlish for 9.10.

ADD: I don't honestly feel FreeBSD is worth all the work it takes to use, I'm prolly gunna wipe that partition today...

I think if I did use Linux, I would use any x64 distro. :)

I've just installed 9.04 on some real hardware to use as another server. Quite impressed to far! :)

Did you install the 32-bit version or the 64-bit version?

Well, 64bit is more reliable than 32bit I suppose! :P

How, the 32bit codebase is far more mature then the 64bit...?
