I use Ubuntu as my primary operating system and absolutely love it. I am also a software developer fluent in C++, PHP, and somewhat-fluent in Python.

Some links:

  • StackApplet - a Gnome applet for keeping track of your activity on this site! Included in Universe for Ubuntu 10.10+.
  • StackExchange Data Dump Browser - a browser for viewing the offline data dumps from this site
  • StackMobile - view the questions, answers, etc. on this site with a smartphone-friendly interface
  • OpenTracks - an open source railway simulation game I started
