I work for Angelo State University as somewhat of a Windows server administrator. I am the founding member of the San Angelo Perl Mongers. I'm fairly new to the Perl Community at large.

I can be found on irc in #yapc, #news, and #win32. I'm trying to help out with the project. I've recently acquired a PAUSE ID and might have a module or two on the CPAN (by the time you read this). []

I am also one of the organizers for YAPC::NA 2007. []

/me prefers Ubuntu

[ #32756 ]

It's official. Ubuntu is my distribution of choice. I installed Fedora Core 6 on my laptop yesterday, but had to fight with drivers and firmware to get the wireless card working. I hate having to screw around with that. I decided to go back with Ubuntu and try it on the laptop. After installing, everything just worked. It's GREAT!

I converted my laptop's previous Windows install to a VM on our ESX server. I plan on either installing Xen and converting the VM or installing VMware Player so that I can run the VM on my laptop and have the same config as before if I end up needing it.

Once I blew away the Windows install, I had to get something up and running on it since this laptop is what I use to work on all of the YAPC::NA stuff.

  • I gotta say, for all my anti-fanboy tendencies (I really really want to hate Ubuntu) they do seem to execute well on the details, and are picking up speed.

    Sometimes it's the little things like, for some reason I don't understand, the Home key works properly by default when using PuTTY, when it's always been broken on Debian.

    And a few other things that show evidence of depth.
