I have a long Windows background but finally switched to Linux two years ago and haven't looked back. I use ArchLinux on my netbook and have an N900 phone which runs the Debian-based Maemo OS. I spend a lot time improving my knowledge of Linux fundamentals and working out customizations to boost productivity.
My hobbies include language-learning, freestyle footbag, bicycling, skateboarding, running, and literature, especially sci-fi. I find motor vehicles repulsive.
