I am a dedicated generalist Junior Systems and Network Administrator with most of my experience in the public sector. I primarily work in the Microsoft ecosystem but my passion is for Linux and other F/OSS software.

I believe in voting and you should too.

comment What are the advantages of Btrfs for end users?

comment Is there a good combination of command-line and graphical file browser?
Ctrl-O will drop you to a shell in Midnight Commander and Ctrl-Enter will place the name of whatever item is selected into the command line. Not quite the same as [tab] auto-complete but pretty close.

comment Advantages of Debian over Ubuntu
I never meant to imply that Ubuntu isn't committed to Free Software, so I apologize if I came off that way. Debian has the Social Contract which is definitely a differentiating feature.
