> 1. How long have you been using linux?
Since around '93.

Dedicated machines. I have windows in a VMWARE session for the rare
time I absolutely must use it.
> 3. What is you favorite Distribution?
> 5. Do you use Open-Source software in both Windows and Linux?
Yes, (Firefox, thunderbird, etc)
> 6. Where do you get most of your linux and open-source programs from?
I don't have a specific source. I get them from their respective sites
repositories... though I suppose www.freshmeat.net is a place I
regularly go if I only
have a vague idea of what I'm looking for.

Nothing I'm specifically aware of.

Not likely. At least not with money.

Too many to count.

Those sort of sites, mostly common with the windows game/windows app
downloading sites are exceptionally annoying, but since they don't
provide anything I use much I generally ignore them.
