Background

I've been using and deploying Linux since I was at University in the early 90's; started with Slackware, then Red Hat, then Fedora and then Ubuntu in the last couple of years.

Apache + JBoss on Red Hat Enterprise Linux was my first foray into deploying open-source instead of propriety software in an enterprise and I've not looked back; The rest of the propriety software environment quickly followed..... Nagios, Puppet, Solr, MySQL and more. I find that open-source is both more cost effective and more flexible than deploying propriety software.

Before that I was a Java Applications Developer working with early versions of Java Enterprise Edition on very expensive propriety middle-ware.
