On days where its really cloudy its not exactly light out before 8AM either. You can't rely just on light alone to determine when its time to get up or go to bed. Your body has other systems for that. Failing that, there's alarm clocks.
I really like using linux for day to day things, or would like to more, if the things (read: games) I want to play were supported better on it. Maybe with Steam taking an interest in it we'll see that shift in the years to come, but for now I dual boot it with Windows.
