I've been full time 100% GNU+Linux for three years now. I honestly couldn't be happier having thrown off my shackles to proprietary OSs and programs.
Presently rocking LinuxMint 19.2 Cinnamon.

My machines are 100% Linux. We are an almost Windows-free household; there is one old Thinkpad somewhere in the house that runs W7 in order to run a specific E-bay sniper tool.

Got me a Lenovo T-430 with 180 gig SSD and 8 gigs ram and put Mint 19.1 MATE on it. works perfectly. Use to have Ubuntu MATE on two older laptops but in time they got too slow to use, besides they were 32bit versions/laptops. Haven't used Windows XP for approx 8 years.

100% linux Mint on Lenovo T430 and my wifes HP Pavillion PC, 99.9% linux Mint on my HP Pavillion PC - I do boot up Win7 (with no updates) on very rare occasion as a guest VM for Garmin Nav updates once a year (although now with in car navigation and Waze . . . what for ? ? ? ?) and for the Family Tree Maker app for my wife twice so far in three years.

Started dual booting in 2003.
Wiped all Windows installs in 2005...been running nothing but Linux since then.

Any new machine I get with Windows installed gets an immediate wipe...all partitions, including recovery partitions.
It can be done, you just need resolve. If it can't be done in Linux, I'm not interested. This requires a bit of research before hardware purchases. Put in the work, reap the rewards.

100% Linux. Can't stand Windows - it's alright at work where someone else is in charge of admin - but for home use hell no.

Linux Mint since v14. My partner Linux since last October wiped her Win10. There is a disk in her machine with Win7 which might go if there was ever any reason to try it.

The Shed is 100% Linux Mint. Tough, every Friday morning a bunch of old folk come in to use the meeting room (SeniorNet) with Windows to be taught how to use their computers. Horror. No accounting for some people.

May 2016 I moved away from Windows and started my Mint adventure. Never, and I truly mean NEVER, regretted that choice. I am a techie and need Windows for embedded programming, but for that I run Windows7 in a Virtual Box.
Rosa Mate (Mint17.3) is still my favourite but since support ended April 2019, I moved to Tessa Cinnamon 19.1

Wow! More replies than I ever expected.

I really expected more dual users, not just for one off needs.

Practically speaking, I'm 100% Linux. Technically, no. I have a variety of OSes installed in VirtualBox: a couple of BSDs, ReactOS, KolibriOS, maybe some version of Windows (probably 7), FreeDOS, other odds and ends. And I have an old 386 machine collecting dust in a closet with Windows 3.11 on it, which ran just fine the last time I fired it up, about 10 years ago. But as far as bare-metal installs, and what actually gets used, it's all Linux.

I'm now 100% Linux...still have my Win 7 VM but very rarely use as I've found Linux versions of software I like and I can always use Wine or Playonlinux. Image :D :D :D

Daily driver is a T430 that's 100% Mint 19.1
I also have a Miix 510 (convertible tablet) that runs Windows 10 1903 as it's used for Sketchbook, SAI, Affinity Photo etc.

Haven't had any WIndows partitions for a few years, and previously had one unused WIndows parftition for a couple of years. By that time I was pretty sure I dodn't need it. But some do ... many newbies are FAR too quick getting rid of WIndows,

I used to be all Linux (except for work) but I've discovered OneNote and really love it for research notes, work meetings... practically everything, really. So my laptop is a Surface Pro running Windows 10.

Surprisingly, I don't hate it. It's actually a decent OS for my coding needs (python and rust). I do have Ubuntu on it too but dual-booting is a bit complicated so it rarely sees use.

I'm a complete newbie here, just installed Mint last week on 2 old Thinkpads (from XP). I've also finally upgraded 2 somewhat less old laptops to Windoze 10, after having past upgrade attempts fail. I don't know how I feel yet about 10, at least it's better than 8. No point to telling all that, except I'm pleased to have viable computing choices again.

How many of you are 100% Linux on your personal and family machines? (Work PCs don't count). How many also keep Mac or Windows computers around or dual boot?
WinXP, Win7, Android 4.4.4, Android 6.2, and many versions of Linux Mint.

FWIW, 18.3 Cinnamon is my Daily Driver on my laptop, which gets 99.98% of my keyboard time.

Since I only use my VM for Macrium to get the Rescue Media because it wont run on Linux...maybe once a year...I'd say yes 100% Linux now. Image :D :D
