Yes, I'm a Linux Geek.

I know there are probably several hardcore Linux geeks that read my blog so I have to give them a shoutout. I'm not as intense into Linux as some of my friends but I do enjoy playing around with it and have for years. A good friend got me started on Slackware many, many years ago and for a while it was a bit of an obsession. I still prefer Slack over any other distro just because it is what I learned on and I have a bit of sentimental attachment to it. I do run several other distros though. SuSe, Ubuntu, and DSL being some of my other favorites.

Linux Geeks, let yourselves be known! What distros are you running at the moment?

  3. I love Linux. In fact, I am in the process of developing a new distro based on Debian (not Ubuntu - although I do love Ubuntu). I was converted by Slackware... And still love the fist 'mainstream' distro!

  6. Only using Ubuntu on my netbook. The netbook came with Windows 7, which ran it fine, just I wanted to try something new on it, and as I only use it for University stuff, it's not like I need Windows as Ubuntu has everything I need.

  9. I run ubuntu on my netbook (but dual boot it with win7). I doubt I could ever use it as my main OS, simply because I'm too lazy to really learn all the ropes of ubuntu.
