My Linux Encounter

In 2001, while I was in Automatica University, I have met someone/something. It’s name was BSD, FreeBSD. It was very showing off, and all nine yards, but me! me I was stoned, did not knew what and how to do, to “get in touch” with it. Then after a while some Debian came across me, and said “Hi!”. I was the same, stupid stoned! While I learn how to deal with Cisco devices in the University, I started to meet more often with this Debian, with FreeBSD, Red Hat and some more of them friends, Slackware, Mandrake, and some others.
After graduation I had to leave them behind a while. After all I was working for a company which was dedicated to Ms products, and UNIX based was forbidden for a show up.
2004. I heard of a Debian based Linux distribution is trying to make into the Linux community, and to come with long term Linux Development. I was curious, so Warty Warthog was a love at first sight. Not that I didn’t try any other kinds of Linux! There was for PC/Servers troubleshooting Knoppix/Gnoppix one of my favorite and many others. But this Warty Warthog, which is the first Ubuntu version [4.10], bewitch me with its simplicity, and started to use it, abuse it and love it 🙂 .

Since then I managed to make network infrastructures based upon Ubuntu, and they work just fine. Yes they are more flexible, easy to manage, easy to deploy, easy to migrate more than other commercial solutions. This is not a Commercial, this is just fact.

And yes I do contribute to the Ubuntu Community as long as I have time and knowledge. And, Yes! it’s marvelous to know you CAN make a difference, even if it is a small one.
