A Bit About Me
I am a graduate of Computer Science at Wilfrid Laurier University. Some of my interests include golf, politics, computers, singing/acting, and poker.
My Past Computer Experience
I have been using computers for as long as I remember. My very first computer was a Pentium 133MHz. I started programming in Visual Basic at around the age of 8.
My Past Experience With Free Software
I have also been using various distributions of Linux/Unix/FreeBSD from a young age. I have experience with Linux distributions such as RedHat, Mandrake, Gentoo, Debian, Slackware, Fedora, and Ubuntu. I’m probably missing a few. I used to dabble a lot in various distros when I had more time. In the past, I have used FreeBSD for a router/firewall on my home network.
Why I Agreed To This
I agreed to do this because I want to gain more knowledge with various distributions of Linux. I also want to see how some pieces of software have progressed since I last ran Linux full-time.
What I Hope To Get Out Of It
I want to gain more knowledge of distributions I am not familiar with. It was a stretch to find a good distro that I have not used yet, but I have found one. More on this later… I would also like to give back to the Linux/Open source community.
What My Current Computer Setup Is
Will have to update this later.
What Distribution Am I Running?
For the first experiment I ran OpenSuSE. For the second experiment I ran Linux from Scratch. For this experiment, I will be running ArchLinux.
