I prefer FreeBSD when it is feasible, otherwise I do Linux. I can go back and forth, though remembering when to use yum vs apt and how to manage your repos requires me to read my notes, every single time.
I am trying to push myself into more than just dabbling. I currently have a few different Raspberry Pi computers with multiple SD cards running a mix of Raspbian, OSMC and Manjaro. I have tried a few other distros but most seem to need more work than I can dedicate time too.
I also just bought a Pinebook Pro running Manjaro.
when I was still working full time I had machines running linux and ubuntu, but now I really have not the time or real need to mess around any more so I keep current on news and what people are doing but I do not have machines running anything but apple os’s
I worked weekends for a buddy of mine that ran a PC repair/small network installation business.He turned me on to Ubuntu, and from there it was Mint, Manjaro, and now just started to explore Puppy. I love not having to spend money for an OS and hardware upgrades. Great way to give old harware a new life and just learn something new.
You know you’re a Linux geek if you’ve ever had to use echo and redirection from the bootloader command shell to create an /etc/passwd file with a no-password entry for root in order to recover a system.
