I use Linux for work. There is a smooth work flow that I can achieve using the Linux Desktop that just doesn’t happen for me on any other platform. I find using Linux for serious projects not only is efficient but I also enjoy the process.
Both my home desktop and my laptop run Ubuntu Linux as the default OS. I do that for consistency. Having different Office Suites in the past has caused minor inconsistencies in documents I start on one and finish on the other.
Here is the list of software I use daily in my work:
- LibreOffice 4.3 Writer and sometimes Calc
- gEdit 3.2.1 for note-taking
- FireFox 7 for Internet Research and Email
- and Ubuntu Linux 11.10 to make it all run flawlessly
