Linux / FOSS Experience

My first contact with Linux was with SuSE 5.1. After almost a year I switched to Debian because yast was annoying me Wink ;) After Debian I switched to a LFS to gain further knowledge of the basics of the system and for the good feeling of running something collected together by myself. Used this until further updating of the system was becoming boring and switched to the newborn Gentoo. Stayed there until Hoary Preview was released and switched almost instantly as installing new software was of course much faster and updates were working better than with Gentoo.

Today I'm using Ubuntu on all desktop systems as this seems to be the best suited distribution for all my daily tasks and as a development platform. On serverside I'm currently using FreeBSD because IMHO all services I run feel much more integrated than with every Linux distribution I tried.

I'm currently advertising both to all my friends
