My experience with GNU/Linux professionally and personally

Filed under
Linux

I am writing this out of my close association with GNU/Linux for quite sometime.I have had been using it everywhere to do my day to day work.

So my journey started with GNU/Linux ..still continues till today.I have had been to different situation to tackle GNU/Linux in different environments.And I enjoyed every bit of it.Sometime it bring down to my knees and sometime it gave a real pleasure to accomplish some and share it with others fellow thinkers.

This is my 4th laptop(yeah too frequent you can say!)..every time I went to a shop to buy a laptop..the people around said it doesn't support GNU/Linux(yes ,till few years back it was headache to install GNU/Linux in the laptop but not the case now!!) .So the first thing I did (as all the laptop come with a proprietary OS install in it),erase the OS from the HDD and install GNU/Linux on it( I always carry a Live CD/DVD with me) and believe it or not every time it works(yes I might be the lucky few!).

Yes , I had to do lot of tweaking to work it as I like ..but worth the effort and time..in turn it enhances my understanding about GNU/Linux.

I have had tried and tested hell lot of GNU/Linux distro time and time again..just to look into it and try to figure out how it work differently from one distribution to other.And of late doing the same thing with a technology called "virtualization".

I have four GNU/Linux distribution running in my laptop

You won't need to upgrade your hardware. You will never be out of support. It won't cost you a penny. You won't need to buy extra software such as Microsoft Office. You won't get any viruses.

Netrunner 14.1 – Main Edition (Frontier)

The “14.1” indicates an updated and polished release of Netrunner 14 LTS on the same underlying base. Since 14.1 is using the same base “trusty” like Netrunner 14, there is no need for users of 14 to migrate: Simply updating from the shared backports ppa of the Frontier release cycle should give the same result, while keeping customizations in place.
