Back to Linux

For a few years ago, I was very active in the Linux world. I was developing, translating and I even was Team Leader one year for the Swedish Ubuntu Community. Since then I have been working in both Mac OS X- and Windows-environment. But I feel more and more that I miss the Linux environment. OS X is quite okay to work in as a web developer, but I feel a bit too locked in, in that system. Windows is like a nightmare in every way.  It’s a terrible environment to work in, and we hardly need to talk about the security and privacy bit of the system. I’m very interested in computer security and I want to have control over my privacy when writing something on my computer or checking something up on the internet.

I have deleted Windows on one of my computers now, and soon I will delete it on the other one too. About what Linux distribution I use, its different depending on what I will use it for. At the moment I use Ubuntu and Fedora. Ubuntu for the plain simplicity of it. Its just to install and it works out of the box. Fedora when I want to build it up a bit more. I really like them both. I will have Windows installed in a virtual machine for a while, if I need it for some obscure application or something. But I suggest that I will just use it to try and hack it in different ways, to learn more about its (missing) security.

Hopefully I will get some time over to be more active in the Swedish Linux community again.
