I'm a linux noob, really. Though I spent 5 years maintaining a huge website, I had little exposure to the system itself. At work I'm 50% on HP-UX, also as a user. I learn as I progress.
about the System
15" 1400x1050px w/ATI X1400
Slackware 12.1 (pretty much 'vanilla' - only added the fglrx package for the ATI - and as you might have guessed: after reinstalling and recompiling the kernel about 20 times till I found out that for SATA you need some SCSI modules...)
