About Me

I am a Systems Engineer at the LDS Church. As part of my job, I work mainly with SUSE Linux Enterprise Server

My interest in Ubuntu

I have been playing with Ubuntu off and on since the beginning (2004). On servers, I have primarily run Red Hat and SUSE distributions. I really like using Ubuntu on my desktop systems.
