"I am now in my 6th month of being free from Windows"
Well done. Ive been MS free for 15 years.
I live a normal life still...the only thing outside the ordinary is the huge bags of cash I make support non-microsoft stuff.
When I finally walked into the light I stopped having to compete with the MCSE conveyor belt. I began learning things that were previously expensive to learn due the requirement of proprietary hardware or licenses.
I am FREE!
Id hug Stallman for his contribution to free software but he looks like he needs a bath first.
He was also great innthe Harry Potter movies as Hagred.
