    Nope, but I haven't exactly looked since I don't know enough to know how to look. I like it a lot.

    One or two weeks maximum, and you'll revert to Windows only. Just a prediction :D

    lol we'll see. I'm committed this time so I don't think so!

    Maybe if the Win8 really wows me :p

    Maybe I underestimate your commitment. Who knows, you might stick with it longer. For myself, the longest was one week. Something, whatever it may be, eventually draws me back to Windows :) Linux for me is like a mistress I can't seem to get completely out of my life, keeping it at arms length, but attractive enough to pull me back for short affairs, but in the end I go back to my main allegiance, Windows :D

    At this point I actually want to learn how to use Linux in depth so I'm expecting trouble shooting. Normally I last two days and go "Why am I doing this again?"

    Same story applies to me but usually it is because i encounter problems along the way, such as trying to dual boot Windows and Ubuntu and i failed even after asking in the Ubuntu Forums. :D

    Laptop with Windows 7 Ultimate

    Physical :
    ATA Hard drive password

    Always On:
    OS & Microsoft Tools : Win FW , Win Defender , EMET
    Configuration changes: OpenDNS , Downloads Folder , "Run" Folder

    Occasionally Use:
    MS Applocker , Sandboxie , Virustotal, Secunia PSI

    Backup/Recovery
    No backup of present PC.Have some files backed up on other drive.Use MS System Restore.

    Paid
    Windows Ultimate , Sandboxie , and an IronKey , for if I ever need to do online banking at an internet cafe.

    Settings
    Admin/User : Run as Admin with UAC (High)
    EMET : Applications set - Browers & Flash & Steam
    Downloads folder : No execution allowed.
    "Run" folder : Full execution allowed , has Path Access in Applocker
    Applocker : Have 2 simple script files on desktop to switch Applocker On and Off.
    Sandboxie : only used to block untrusted USB's.
    VirusTotal : have "send to" VirusTotal on right-click menu.
    MS Office : is uninstalled.

    The "Run" Folder lets me run any new program, at any time. For me this gives a good balance between convenience and security.

    Yeah, it would be interesting to know what the average Linux trial time is for most people. I'm guessing 1-2 days :)

    That was my trial time a few years back, when I still used Windows 98. :D I must confess Linux wasn't that friendly back then as it is now, though. If I ever try to go to Linux again, then I believe I'd stick a bit longer. :D

    If I weren't playing around with it I'd be using Linux full time. It's the tweaking that kills me :p

    I'm working on setting up applocker profiles, which is pretty easy actually. It's fairly automated and I already have a bunch of them active.

    I'm also looking into the Chrome sandbox on Linux, which obviously uses different methods from Windows.

    Ironically it works in Firefox beta 10 and Aurora. But they probability allow it for testing purposes.

    Apparmor is all set up seemingly. That was easy. Nothing's broken so I'm actually worried that it's not working properly.
