turn your back on what your computer or linux. Linux can do anything that any other OS. What are your interests. There are plenty of things to do. This question doesn't make any sense.

Or are you just trolling??????????

I think the question here is, what do you use a computer for? When you had windows, what did you do within windows?
are you just a web browser? Linux can do that.
do you like graphics or edit graphics? Linux can do that.
do you setup any type of webserver, server, networking.....etc...? Linux can do that too..
do you like to play games? with a little configuration, Linux can even do that....

So I think the real question still lies on what you use computers for, one way or another, use Linux on for whatever you use a computer for.
