    I've tried getting a few on Linux. The issue is they all want things in messengers etc.
    Who needs messengers beside BBM?

    My girl has a Linux laptop for fun and a Windows 8.1 laptop for work (because of some special software). Whenever she changes to Windows she says "Everything is so damned slow ..."

    Everyone who does not have a bb or even a smart phone. BBM isn't the be all end all for everyone. Does everyone you know own a smartphone and that phone is a bb? Well most of my older family and a lot of my friends have dumb phones and could care less about having a smartphone and if they did/do it's an android. They do however have computers.

    And YaST is one of the major reasons why I don't use openSUSE anymore.
    Why?

    YaST is crap, kitty. It's not reliable. Or has been, I don't know, perhaps they did something since then. YaST couldn't even properly update the software packages installed by himself. Two times I got a major disorder on my disk just by YaST's software updates - updated lib32 files overwrote files in the lib64 folder and such things, I had to fix this by hand using the rescue options on the install media. I left openSUSE after many years disappointed and annoyed. Be happy if you never had problems with this.

    I know YaST from the earlier days, way over 10 years ago. Had SuSE as my main OS, but just a few late updates, a few rarer applications installed or - left alone manually installed .rpms - and you were in the dreaded "dependency hell"...

    Half an hour later, still manually trying to resolve package dependency issues, and you're ready to nuke and reinstall ... it was pretty hopeless.

    Then, Debian and - Ubuntu - come along and apt-get does it all like a miracle worker. Never had a drama again, unless I did something really stupid... :-)

    .

    (some 'sudo do-release-upgrade's failed because I had abandoned PPAs and some other mouldy package sources enabled while upgrading)

    Started trying out Manjaro Linux beta. It's an impressive Arch based entry level distro. Probably the best Arch derivative I've tried. Won't replace my current Arch/DWM setup but maybe in the future it might. Certainly I'll recommend it to anyone looking to try out an alternative to the big distros or their derivatives.

    Using Fedora Linux here, and have been for quite some time. (I've used many distros over the years, of course, starting way back in the pre-Slackware days.)

    One thing I love about BlackBerry 10 is that the developer tools are *far* more Linux-friendly than the BBOS dev tools ever were.

    Of course there are still things that unfortunately require Windows of MacOSX... (autoloaders, desktop software, Blend, etc.)
    But I'm not really a purist, and tend to use a little of everything. My "desktop" rig is a Linux (general desktop) and a Windows (mostly games and things that need it) box on a KVM. I also tend to prefer Mac laptops, so I have one of those.

    That's strange. Ubuntu has always adapted to my monitors.

    I'm using Ubuntu dual booted with WIN7PRO on a laptop.

    I like the user-friendliness of the latest release. I'm surprised by a couple things though:

    Thing 1: It's very resource-intensive. I've found it doesn't play nice on even a PIII with 2GB RAM. I didn't play extensively to try to optimize.

    Thing 2: It's got drivers for EVERYTHING! Well, that may be an exaggeration, but all of my hardware works - even the laptop's touchscreen i/f!

    Try hooking it up with an analog monitor cable if it isn't already.

    Many monitors have broken EDID support.

    Ubuntu 14.04 LTS, took the safety route to linux land. Maybe next time I'll try out Arch Linux.

    Used Gentoo before and sometimes still, mostly some debian based distributions at work and at home.
    Primary Device is a Chromebook with crouton, which got some of the latest ubuntu' installed in a chroot - Makes it possible to run a full Ubuntu XFCE Desktop parallel to ChromeOS <3

    Lubuntu 16.04. Ubuntu just seems to be able to deal with all hardware and I prefer a light version, hence Lubuntu.

    Currently using cublinux(seems to have gone AWOL) but debian has always been a staple in my computer collection. I used to try practically every variant availible for public download. Ubuntu lost me at UNITY, but GNOME is making a comeback
