tinman spent a few years mucking around industry before going back to school for a Masters. Currently not enjoying the weather in North England..
He wrote Perl that looked suspiciously like C code in 1998, while working as an intern, and has been trying to cure that bad habit ever since.
University runs Slack 9 by default. My supervisor wants me to install the newly released Mandrake 9.2. I know the RedHat series quite well, but unfortunately, dont see much point moving to it now that the Fedora madness has taken over. There is also the everpopular Debian and I am quite frankly curious to try out Gentoo (never been in a place that had the bandwidth to handle it before).
Sometimes, too much choice is a bad thing too. *grin*.. Mandrake will probably win out though.
