So I had this old Windows 98, I tried to upgrade to 2000 with a friends old 2000 disk. It failed miserably. Another friend let me have a Ubuntu disk because my computer had lost it's OS. I never really knew how bad Windows was until I tried Ubuntu. Yeah it took some getting used to, but now it's all I really ever use. Plus, whenever I do have a problem, I go to the internet and don't need to go through a tech support call. Best OS ever. I have it on 3 computers now.
Oh yeah, moving windows is fun now, didn't see that coming.

I installed Ubuntu two years ago. The primary reason to install Ubuntu was to get rid of proprietary MS Windows OS. Like every one else, I had difficulty getting used to a new computing environment. But then I started loving Ubuntu for its security, stability, easiness, visual appeal and productivity. Ubuntu improved the quality of my work as a blogger and writer. Now I don't worry about configuring my system, removing spyware or combating with viruses and trojans and I can spend more time on my actual work.
Since I write in both English and Urdu Languages. Ubuntu is the best choice as it has the best Urdu support available. It has fonts, keyboard layouts, right to left directional support and better font rendering. And I can install Urdu support by simply downloading one meta package. Urdu support alone was quite an strong reason for me to dump MS Windows.
Ubuntu also brought me closer to people who worked as a community to promote the usage of free and open source software. I made new friends and this provided me a better understanding of software freedom and provided me an opportunity to be a part of this wonderful community.

I started using Ubuntu when my hard drive crashed, erasing Windows. I didn't have any backups or Windows cds, so I installed Ubuntu single boot, because it was free, and I needed to type some papers.
A year and a half later, I've learned so much more about computers and I continue to use Ubuntu, single boot, and laugh at people that get viruses, or have their Windows machines crash for no reason.
Ubuntu on my computer was the smartest technological decision I ever made.
