About Me

Hello, I am Thomas Martin, a web developer in the Pacific Northwest, currently residing in Alaska.

Linux was introduced to me long before I really knew what it meant, though I started using it myself in 2003. At that time I was running Red Hat on an old Pentium 233MHz tower as a server for a game. The first distribution I used for desktop purposes was Fedora, dual booting with Windows XP. I became a distro hopper and tried out Debian, Arch Linux, FreeBSD, Slackware, and Ubuntu, ultimately sticking with Ubuntu 7.04, but still dual booting. Since then, I've stuck with Ubuntu and as of mid-2009, stopped using non-free operating systems.

Linux and Ubuntu in particular have ignited my interest in Free and Open Source Software as well as giving a home to my passion for helping others with their problems, technology-related and otherwise.
