My 2 personal laptops, both stolen on 2 seperate breakins, had Ubuntu on them.
That's a great way to spread Linux !
I don't think people that break into homes can understand linux.
Although maybe these days they can.
I use archlinux as main desktop for 2 years now, only thing is to make it stay on xorg 1.13 because I use proprietary catalyst drivers (hd6970 gfx card) and the proprietary AMD catalyst drivers are very good and very stable and never crash, and everything is perfect.
My computer has solid uptime of several weeks sometimes until I reboot it to use new Linux kernel from updates.
Server specs (Server OS / Apache / MySQL / PHP / DragonflyCMS):
Linux (Kernel: 2.4.21-27.0.2.ELsmp)/1.3.33 (Unix)/4.0.24-standard/4.3.11/184.108.40.206
