About me

Back to the home page

I'm an ordinary Linux user from The Netherlands (Holland). My knowledge of Linux is that of an advanced end user. No more, no less.

Almost 10 years ago I became a full-time Linux user, so I have nearly a decade of practical hands-on experience. Mainly (but not exclusively) with Linux Mint, Ubuntu, other members of the Ubuntu family and openSUSE.

The ideas behind the tips and how-to's that you find on my website, mostly come from other people. What I do, is collecting promising how-to's from the web. Then I try them myself. I fully rewrite the ones that pass that test, in order to make them as clear and simple as possible. Only then I publish them on my website.

The first time that I became fully involved with Linux was in the summer of 2006. Before that, I had already played fleetingly with a Knoppix CD, Mandrake and one of the first versions of Ubuntu.

But all that meant nothing: my real Linux adventure started on a hot July evening in 2006, with the unforgettable Ubuntu 6.06 LTS Dapper Drake. I've been a full time Linux user ever since.

Linux has been, and still is, very useful to me and also great fun. I hope you'll have the same experience!

Linus Torvalds, the man who created the first version of Linux, once answered to the question why he was involved with Linux: "Just for fun!" That's my main motivation, too.

Regards, Pjotr.
