Welcome to Linux Solutions
What Linux Solutions is all about.
Linux Solutions is my website in which I provide frequently updated FAQ's to help you get started in the world of Linux®. I can also provide solutions for you based on your requirements - just contact me for information. I hope you enjoy the content on the site and find it informative and useful. I shall be adding more and more to the site as it develops further, along with my knowledge expansion!
My first Linux experience.
My first experience of Linux came in about 1998, when I installed Mandrake Linux 7.2 on my machine at home. I think I had it for a few days, because at that time, I didn't have the time to try and learn it fully, so ended up going back to Windows full time, and removed Mandrake from my system.
Further Linux experience.
Then back in February 2005, I decided to make a more concerted effort to use Linux completely. I installed Mandrake 10.0 Official, as Mandrake was something I had briefly used before, so thought it would be a good starting point for me. Since then, I've had Mandrake 10.1 Official, Mandriva LE2005, and 2006 on my systems. Now I'm using Mandriva 2007 on all my systems at home.
What distros I use.
My systems tend to be a mixture of distros. So, now I'm currently running CentOS, Debian, Gentoo, Mandriva, Red Hat and Ubuntu.
Other distributions that I use are Arch Linux, Fedora and Slackware. Although you will probably find me trying distros on a regular basis.
You learn something new everyday!
I've gained considerable knowledge in the last year or two, now that I use Linux solely on my systems. But not only that, from my job as well, which has helped in acquiring knowledge on various different distributions as well as getting to a higher level of understanding quicker. I'm due to be Red Hat Certified in the near future, of which I'm waiting for my course and exam for RHCE :-)
