Are you currently a Linux user?

I am, yes. I am a Senior Architect with Red Hat, Inc (One of the leading Linux companies out there) specializing in Unix2Linux migrations. My first foray into linux was in 1991 when I installed Slackware from a stack of 3.5" diskettes on an old 286 that I had laying around.

What distribution of Linux do you currently use?

Several of them ;-) Most of my servers are running Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL), or Red Hat Enterprise Virtualization (RHEV). I have to confess that I do have 1 laptop that runs Ubuntu currently that I play around with on occasion. I've also worked with many other distributions including Debian, SuSE (and OpenSuSE), and even though it's not Linux, I've played around with some BSD. I'm also certified in most major flavor of Unixes that are out there including; HP-UX, AIX, and Solaris.


Hi, I'm Thomas, a skydiving, technical SCUBA diving, flying, computer geek. I have many diverse interests, but most of them center around either making things, or making things work. I look forward to meeting you at a future MeetUp.

What Thomas is saying about this Meetup Group

Great group! (though I'm a little biased) :-)
