Professional Bio

I have run Slackware Linux since 1996 (version 2.3) and will switch to another distribution when the Slackware distribution disks are pried from my cold, dead fingers.

There is also a combination of Windows 7 and Windows 10 either native or under VirtualBox on computers under my control.

Since that isn't enough, there are also Adruinos, Beagle Bones, and Raspberry Pis around.  Luckily, the MicroVAX systems are all gone.

You just do what you have to do.
