I use Ubuntu and seriously, all my hardware (except sound, video, printer and Internet) do not work with it. I can't even use the webcam which is really useful to me, or my headset because even if it doesn't connect via USB, in programs such as gtk-recordmydesktop it doesn't work. I have an all-in-one printer (Printer, scanner and copier) and the scanner doesn't work. Also the programs can't let me do the normal stuff I do with Windows Vista and 7. I can't edit videos, Kdenlive is extremely difficult to use, I can't broadcast live because the webcam or programs like ManyCam don't work, I can't play Marble Blast, Pidgin sucks compared to Windows Live Messenger, I can't even play games in InstantAction, OpenOffice is good but it sucks compared to Microsoft Office... I can't even manage my iPod touch because iTunes doesn't work... and also DO NOT TELL ME TO USE WINE because 99% of the Windows programs I use with Wine do not work.

Is your hardware and programs compatible with Linux? Do you do different stuff with Linux or do you just do basic things like I do? Because Ubuntu is very fast, does not get infected by viruses, but I cannot do the things I do with Windows. Also, if you know how to get the things I listed above to work, I would really appreciate it if you tell me.

Still, Windows FTW!!!

Spotify
Zattoo

Skype
Firefox
Google Chrome

There is Skype for Linux. But it's a basic version, that doesn't have all the features that Skype for Windows has.
