Hello all, I have been playing with computers for as long as I can remember and currently work as a Helpdesk tech supporting the computers there. I have been looking into moving into Linux server administration and got my LPIC-1, A+...


Hi, I live in the USA. I lived in Minnesota for the first 8 years of my life and have been living in South Carolina ever since.



I have been using Linux since 2002 and using Archlinux since May 2006. My path on the desktop has been Mandrake -> Debian -> Mepis -> Ubuntu -> Archlinux. Arch has been a perfect fit for me. I like to see how Linux works and get to customize it to the way I want. Pacman, aur, abs, and rolling releases are awesome. The hardware I am running on is:

  1. AMD64 3000+ (OC 2.14 ghz)
  2. 1 GB DDR RAM
  3. Asus A8S-X
  4. XFX Geforce 7900 GT pci-e x16
  5. 19" Dell E196FP

The apps/DE I love and run on linux are:

  1. DE/WM
    1. Gnome
    2. XGL/Beryl
  1. Swiftfox
  2. Thunderbird
  3. Banshee
  4. Mplayer
  5. VLC player
  6. GAIM
  7. Open Office
  8. Tomboy
  9. Gnomesword
  10. Beagle
  11. F-Spot
  12. GIMP
  13. VMWare Server


I have been using Debian mostly on the server since 2004, but I am currently converting another box to arch and that will be my server soon.
