I've been using Linux since the late 90's, and have had a career involving Solaris, a tiny bit of Irix, and plenty of Linux - mostly operating at the shell scripting and application level.

I currently use XUbuntu for most development, an OSX Desktop on a home PC, and various server setups including RH, FC and Debian.
