I'm a software engineer that writes both application and system-level code. I've coded in a variety of languages, both compiled and interpreted. I like working with Linux, and have been using it for over 15 years. I'm also familiar with zOS, AIX, and have been known to dabble in Windows development. I'm a fan of open-source software, and have run a variety of Linux distributions over the years.

comment Unable to update thunderbird
This is a good question, with a good answer. The Mozilla folks are great about updating, but that's useless unless you follow their PPA.

comment Why can't you have multiple instances of Synaptic?
If you look at the RPM based distributions, you see the same behavior if you try to run concurrent rpm operations.
