What level of experience do you have with Linux

Well, I think I have a high level of experience, but I can't come close to Kevin Fries. However, even he cannot get my wireless networking to work.

Which Distrobution, if any do you prefer

I have liked them all, but I must admit that I liked the ability to set different wallpapers on the many desktops, which I believe was available in older KDE desktops. I currently run Android and 64-bit Ubuntu.

How long have you used Linux

I Started working with UNIX in 1985 and actually walked through much of the kernel code at AT&T Bell Labs. I have been using some flavor of Linux since 1999. Kevin Fries introduced me to Ubuntu in 2006.

Have you ever tried to assist others in the use of Linux

Yes, many times. Mainly my husband and son. But many people who know me have heard be brag about Linux and why it is so great for many many years.


I love the power of the UNIX operating system. As a long time software engineer, I can appreciate the modular architecture of Linux. Also, I love the global reach of Linux and the fact that it is now considered sexy and cool.
