programming and networking. Actually, some of it is programming networking protocols and network control systems.

3. How much do you earn?
a. less then USD 1000
b. between USD 1000 and USD 2000
c. between USD 2000 and USD 3000
d. over USD 3000
Way, way over USD 3000.

Quote:

4. Do you enjoy your job? Why?
I work for myself. I consult. This is what I prefer over anything else I could be doing.

Quote:

. Does Ubuntu helps you to earn more money? How?
No. I rather strongly dislike Ubuntu, though I still have one system deployed with it.

Quote:

6. Is that your primary or just part time job?
Technical/engineering consulting is what I do. Much though not all of that is Linux. I don't work full time because I don't want to. If I worked full time, I would wind up having to hire people. Don't want that.

Quote:

7. Have you graduated?
yes

Quote:

8. Where do you live?
a. America
b. Europe
c. Africa
d. Asia
e. Australia
America for now, though I'll entertain offers that would have me move elsewhere.

Do you thinks the idea of being linux as a primary job is good idea? (with employing...)


Thanks for replying.

Well currently i'm 14 years old, and a HUGE fan to linux.
Whats the best distribution for doing Linux projects rather than Gentoo?

@talalpro: this is a bizarre thread. (Yes, I know you're 14.)

Choosing a career path in GNU/Linux is a great idea, if:
  • the job market you're targeting has opportunities
  • you enjoy the work
  • you're willing to develop proficiency in the written/spoken language(s) needed to do your job well

@anomie: (How did you know im 14 ? my bad language?)

What do you mean by language(s) Computer language or social language?
