I'm Scott (a/k/a angrykeyboarder).
I've been a Linux user and enthusiast (on and off) since 1999. I started first with [http://web.archive.org/web/20000903125324/www.linuxmandrake.com/en/ Mandrake] (now known as [http://www.mandriva.com/ Mandriva]), then [http://www.redhat.com/ RedHat] and [http://www.suse.com/ SUSE]. Then I went on a "hiatus" for a few years came back in 2004 starting off on [http://www.fedora.redhat.com Fedora Core 3] and after that, [http://www.ubuntu.com Ubuntu] and [http://www.kubuntu.org Kubuntu] Hoary and have upgraded to every new version since. I have also used [http://www.debian.org/ Debian] (both [http://www.us.debian.org/releases/unstable/ "Unstable" -a/k/a: "sid"] and [http://www.us.debian.org/releases/testing/ Testing)] ) and [http://fedoraproject.org/ Fedora] in recent times.
This all just reinforces what a great distribution (K)Ubuntu is. Although the geek in me likes to toy around, so I'll probably end up adding something later to the mix. Regardless, I can't see myself abandoning Ubuntu/Kubuntu. There is too much going for it. Frankly one of the best things is the unbeatable community. They are great.
I'm not a coder or programmer, but I enjoy answering new users' questions and try to help out when I can in the [http://ubuntuforums.org forums] and on the [http://lists.ubuntu.com mailing lists] (and a bit less often on the IRC channels).
I have also begun dabbling in compiling Linux software from source code and building Debian (Ubuntu) packages (allthough I admit to "cheating" with [http://freshmeat.net/projects/checkinstall/ "CheckInstall"] ).
As of this writing (28 May 2007) I'm running Feisty (with Ubuntu, Kubuntu and Xubuntu desktops installed). I spend most of my time in either KDE and GNOME. I can't decide which of the two I like better, so I decided not to decide. I would say that I do generally lean toward KDE. I also dual-boot with [http://www.microsoft.com/windows/products/windowsvista/editions/ultimate/default.mspx Windows Vista Ultimate] (upgraded from XP in February 2007) because well...there are a few things that Windows still does better and I actually hold no ill will toward the OS. It's pretty good actually (shh..keep that on the DL. It goes [http://www.forbes.com/intelligentinfrastructure/2005/06/16/linux-bsd-unix-cz_dl_0616theo.html against the grain] of a lot of Linux people)..
I've never used an Operating System that I didn't (dis)like.
In any event, the geek in me likes the flexibility you get with Linux. I spent more of my computer time in Linux than Windows.
Speaking of dual-booting, this is the [http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=541266#post541266 box] I'm talking about.
And knowing me, I may end up with another couple of Linux distros, FreeBSD & (Open)Solaris on it as well (when I get around to it ). Besides, I have got more hard drive space than I know what to do with (and I keep adding more).

I am not on the Ubuntu Users team because it is for official Ubuntu Members. I am not (yet) an Ubuntu member.

And in the [http://ubuntuforums.org/member.php?u=12487 web forum] as well.
Computers, Software, Internet, Theatre, Music, Politics, Current Events, [http://airliners.net Commercial Aviation]. I blog/journal quite a bit (although I go through phases were I'm not in the mood.). You will find links to some of my various blogs/journals and so forth on my [http://angrykeyboarder.com web site] (which I desperately need to update).
Since this is a Wiki, that reminds me, probably the best "bio" I have on the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Internets_(colloquialism) Internets™] at the moment is on [http://www.wikipedia.org Wikipedia]. It is my [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Angrykeyboarder User Page].
My Job (or lack thereof)
I am presently unemployed (for reasons you can read about on my [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/User:Angrykeyboarder Wikipedia Page] but eventually I hope to go to school and get some training and/or a degree in the IT field. I'd like to work in said field in some capacity (I am nmot sure what I would be doing at this point). Most of my previous work experience (20 years worth) has been in the travel/call center industry. That is an industry I am no longer interested in (so IT Help Desks would be out of the question ).
