I like to travel, and when I can, share with family and friends, if there is time. I also like video games, PC and PS3 games.
Why and when did you start using Linux?
Back in 1998, I wanted to see if the grass was greener in the other side of the fence, so I tried with Red Hat I think. That didn't worked well at all, then I tried Mandrake Linux, and found a new hobby.
What specific equipment do currently use with PCLOS?
At the moment, I'm using PCLinuxOS in two machines. A desktop PC with an AMD Athlon x4 860k, and a Lenovo B41 35 laptop.
Do you feel that your use of Linux influences the reactions you receive from your computer peers or family? If so, how?
With family, they know that I can wipe any virus or menace, so I am who can help. But on my job, Ubuntu is used alot, more than I like to!
What would you like to see happen within PCLOS that would make it a better place. What are your feelings?
PCLinuxOS as a forum, more hands helping, answering questions. The amount of questions I don't have an idea how to even dare to try to answer is big, and is sad to see questions without an answer.
