Australian Linux Community


I run a small IT firm in Australia, i do find that linux support and the intrinsic knowledge that goes into learning, developing in it, is an underrated skillset.

Now days people all want GUI's and UX is a big thing.

But when things need to run and run well i find that linux is a big part of that.

However, there are times where the value of that knowledge is as i said undervalued.

While most of the average joe calls for "paranoid" security reasons i guess it would now be the larger enterprise clients which genuinely appreciate the knowledge that goes into knowing how to do DR, Database systems etc.

Im not sure how it is in the US or EU but i hope its looked upon differently and would genuinely like to hear others views.

Spam/advertising link; reported. And if you like Linux so much, why then are you posting here from a Mac?

Be that as it may, you are definitely peddling your website here and, by extension, your company.
There's a fine border between having a link in your signature or starting your LQ membership with several blog and forum posts that all contain hints & links. You have crossed that border.
FWIW, I don't think you should be banned but you should probably remove those links of your own accord and take that lesson with you.
But I have reported several of your posts as well.

And last time I checked, OSX still wasn't Linux, and is based on BSD (again, NOT Linux). And I'm not your 'friend', and it would seem like you need 'enlightening', since you obviously didn't read the posts about advertising and spamming.

Reported, again.

Thanks appriciate the feedback. Lets keep the thread on topic though.

Have you noticed an increase in paranoia and the use of Linux variants? Tails etc? Hardened Ubuntu even?

Lets stay on topic, have you noticed the trend towards the "average joe" moving away from windoze to tails? i can see from your signature your a Kali affectiondo. Do you use that distro as your daily driver?

Yeah, let's stay on topic; you're a spammer/advertiser who ignored forum rules about posting such junk. And no idea what you mean by a 'Kali affectiondo' (did you mean 'aficionado'??) Did you bother to READ those links???
