I just want to introduce myself:
I'm from Germany and I'm programming a lot with PHP(+Mysql) and Java (and a little bit C/C++/C# and Perl), so I will often visit the programming section ;-)
About a half year ago I switched completely to Linux and I don't regret it
(honestly sometimes I do, if some software isn't available(e.g. Nokia Suite for my handy) under linux nor wine can cope with it, especially I miss my Miranda (icq client))
My distribution is Mandrake 10.0, but I'm own only user rights ;-( but this is going to change soon
Any Questions ?
