I'm currently dual-booting Windows 7 and Linux Mint 11 x64. I use Virtual Box in Mint though with Ubuntu 32/64 and Linux Mint 32/64 installed to test my scripts using the snapshot feature so that I can quickly revert any changes and try again. XBMC and the TV/Movie scrapers are also something that also made my move to Linux much more permanent.

VirtualBox OSE is *very* easy to use and more stable than VMWare Player at the moment. I'm not sure if it has the ability to use Photoshop or not because it can't run games from it without severe tweaking. But all you do is install it from the software center and then run it. Go to New -> Windows 7 (or whatever OS you want to install) -> Select the amount of ram you want (512 recommended min for just using the OS up to what you need for Photoshop) -> Boot Hard Disk w/ Create new Hard Disk -> Dynamically Expanding -> Size windows can expand up to.

Once that is created click start and you should get a first run wizard asking you to select the Host Media. Either select an ISO location or your installation CD. Hit finished and let the computer go through the installation process. Make sure you unmount the CD.

Worked with a friend to help custom-build the hardware for my desktop. I run Linux Mint 11 on both my desktop and my laptop, both x64. The desktop was primarily set up for gaming, so I do dual-boot Windows 7, but I spend most of my time in Linux. Whenever I can, I run most things in Linux. I've used the script in the other post to start learning how to play with ADB, but I'm not very good at it yet. I still really use Root Explorer for that sort of thing. I use VirtualBox also primarily for OneNote since there's no Linux equivalent, and really nothing can beat it for taking notes in class

Uses to have Mint on my desktop (quad 2.4 Intel, 4gb ram) but misses my games so its back to W7. Just threw Fedora 15 on my laptop though. The new Gnome is kinda sexy. Decided to try it instead of Ubuntu/Unity.

There can be some fun games in Linux.. I know a lot of people like Cube 2: Sauerbraten which I believe is a team based objective FPS. Also PlayDeb.net is a repository you can add that has a ton of games in it (or download directly from the website). The Humble Indie Bundles work great with Linux too, if you've bought any of them.

Currently I have linux on 2 of my computers. I have Ubuntu 11.04 on my Dell inspiron 1545 laptop w/o a partition on a 500 gig drive, then I have my beastly custom desktop which has two 1TB drives, one for booting Ubuntu, the other for Win 7. I also have a small 256gig ssd partitioned between Arch linux and the recent Win8 leak.

Overall, I find Ubuntu to be the best as it has the power of the Debian builds with the ease of use that comes with the Unity launcher.

My machine is a second hand Sony Vaio VGN-FZ285U model from the US. It's around 4 years old now


Currently running:
OS: Ubuntu 11.04 (I dislike Unity though) - Also, Vista Ultimate is installed but I haven't booted into it for at least 4 months now

RAM: 2GB
HDD: 50GB on my Ubuntu partition -
Total size is 250GB but the file permissions are mucked up so I can't use it

CPU: Intel Core 2 Duo T7500 (Dual core 2.2ghz)
Screens: 15" included in laptop, 8 year old LG 19" square LCD

It does the job, and it's the best our whole house has
thankfully I no longer have to build AOSP on it, that would take 3+ hours at a time and I couldn't do anything else at the same time.
