From Linux User, to Electrical Engineer, to Linux Foundation Instructor: Jan-Simon Möller
Jan-Simon Möller is a consultant and trainer for the Linux Foundation's training program and holds an electrical engineering degree. But he started out as a home Linux user tinkering with different distributions before moving on to systems administration.
He now teaches a range of Linux Foundation courses, from writing Linux kernel drivers, to embedded Linux development, and system administration. His expertise lies in embedded Linux, Realtime Linux, SELinux, power management, and integration of new compilers.
Here Möller tells us more about how he learned Linux, his career path, the projects he's currently involved in, and his ham radio hobby.

Benchmarks Of 45 Linux Systems From Atoms, Athlons & Phenoms To Xeons
Yesterday I ran a set of interesting CPU-focused benchmarks on 45 of the Linux systems within my custom-built basement server room that represents many of the systems powering the upstream daily open-source testing at LinuxBenchmarking.com. The tests ran yesterday were primarily processor focused as not all of these computers/servers are equipped for handling GPU testing, etc. This article is basically to provide a look at many different old and new, low-end and high-end systems. The software stacks for the different systems vary based upon what they're testing day-to-day within the server farm, so take these results as you wish. Most of the systems are running Ubuntu 14.04/14.10/15.04 with recent Linux kernel versions.
