The Linux Setup - Goblin, TechBytes/OpenBytes

Filed under

I kind of love it when interviewees say they have a perfect Linux setup. It’s nice to see someone living the dream. Goblin, aka Tim, has a setup he considers to be perfect, and that gives us all something to strive for.

1. Who are you, and what do you do?

I run a blog and co-host an audiocast which highlights diversity in the computing world. I emphasise FOSS solutions [and] champion the plethora of choice in today’s market.

I run these projects as hobby and it’s as far removed from my real job as is probably possible.

2. What distribution do you run on your main desktop/laptop?

On my desktop form factor I am currently runing PCLinuxOS.

Rest here

RE: The Linux Setup

I totally agree, PCLinuxOS is more than adequate for my needs, too.
