I'm a geek who loves Linux. I do my best to help other Linux users, but oftentimes, I'm the one who needs help.

My personal favorite software:

  • Chromium
  • VLC
  • TrueCrypt
  • 7-Zip (or p7zip)

I've recently switched from Ubuntu to Arch Linux, and I'm absolutely loving it. I really appreciate the control it offers over your system - instead of trying to stop a user from installing software just because it doesn't have the "correct" license, it lets you decide what software you do or don't want on your system. (It's yours, after all.)
