Growing up through the 1980s and 1990s, I was always into computers. As I entered university in the early 1990s, I was a huge DOS nerd. Then I discovered Linux, a powerful Unix system that I could run on my home computer. And I have been a Linux user ever since.
I wrote my story for OpenSource.com, about How I got started with Linux.
In the article, I also talk about how I've deployed Linux in every organization where I've worked. I'm a CIO in local government now, and while we have yet to install Linux in the year since I've arrived, I have no doubt that we will someday.
