LGOPs here! Have been lurking on the forums for some time (needed support) and well I now have mostly everything under hand now. I am by no means a stranger to linux. I first heard about it while attending high school (97-01). Never really dealt with it until I went out and bought SUSe 9 (I think it was...) then gave up (18 month deployment didn't help) as I started to have some technical problems. Fast forward about 6 years and some how I came across Ubuntu (12.04). Anyways I'm liking it thus far. I have several machines running an open source Linux (OpenSUSe, Ubuntu, and CENT OS). I'm actually looking into automating my greenhouse and Linux seemed the way to go as I am doing this as a DYI project (I run Mac and Win as well). I actually have a lot of projects that are being developed that will use Linux.
