My current job description is Solutions Engineer (End User focused). My skills include programming and scripting in several languages, automation obviously, Windows and Linux systems, MS Active Directory, troubleshooting, OS imaging, patching, installer authoring and repackaging for deployment, current job tasks: solutions engineering, design, testing and research.

A little MS SQL knowledge, enough to pull data off it but not a DBA. Some VMWare knowledge as well but mostly using the Workstation product (great for quick testing/modifying software and installers).

I have a BS in Software Engineering and I'm MCTS on MS 70-640, ITIL v3 Foundations Certified.

Currently learning Python, Perl, and Cassandra.

comment Is there a text editor for the command line that uses the same keys as Notepad on Windows?
Don't know of any one terminal editor in Linux that would allow you to use notepad like commands. That said, have you tried using "nano"? The commands are listed at the bottom and it's installed by default on most distributions.

comment GNOME Shell consumes 100% CPU
what commands have you tried so far to be so sure it's the shell causing it?

comment External monitor resolution stuck at 1024x768
@Uri Herrera I read that part and that's why I suggested "switching" to the fglrx to see if that fixed the issue. He could switch back and see if it was working correctly and if it didn't work with fglrx then at least we know it's not because he is using the open driver.

comment How to make sure that gcc, binutils, make and the kernel source are installed?
sudo apt-get install gcc make build-essential linux-headers-$(uname -r). Then when compiling VMware tools make sure you type in the path to the headers: echo /usr/src/linux-headers-$(uname -r)/include to get the path before you are asked for it.
