Re: Illinois & Chicago Shoutouts
My name is Richard Berglund, although I'm commonly known as "Rick" or "Rab". Home is just south of Chicago, in the suburban town of Lansing. Although I have moved to the Bloomington/Normal in central Illinois for school and work. I am a graduate from Illinois State University where I studied Information Systems and currently work in the IT field as a Systems Analyst.
I have been using Linux for almost a decade now. My initial exposure to Linux was from a friend, that ironically works at Microsoft now, who was running Red Hat. Impressed by what I seen, I bought a couple beginning books on Linux and started reading. Sadly, since the only computer we had was the families I had to wait an entire year before I could install Linux (I worked as temporary help to get enough money to build a new computer).
Several years later and after many PC builds I have tried several distributions of Linux. I started with Red Hat (7.x series) and have toyed with versions all the way up to Fedora Core 3. I have also worked with SuSE/Novell, Gentoo, Slackware, Mandrake/Mandriva, BSD, and of course Ubuntu; which has become my distro of choice for the last few years.
