Hi from France!
I'm an addicted unix/linux user for about 10 years. I'm now a programmer, I like network, security, system.
I began on IRIX, DEC/OSF1 . Then at home I discovered Slackware, then played with Mandrake, and Redhat+uclinux at work. I also tested a little bit MEPIS, DSL, Ubuntu, Knoppix, Fedora, Redhat 9, Suse 9.1 , Kanotix, Kaella, Trustix and now I have sticked for 1 year on the amazing Debian.
On the contrary of what other people say, I find the last releases of Debby quite easy to maintain, configure, install... Compared to other distros, I had no big problem using Debian.
I'm always trying to convert people from proprietary OS to real free software.
