UNIX admin since pre-Y2K.  Linux user since the Windows Vista Fiasco of 2008.  MCSE, MCITP, CompTIA A+, Network+, Server+, Security+ and iNet+ certified.  Hey, I love Linux, but Windows pays the bills.  Going for LPIC certification next.  My desktop system is a Shuttle barebones system with an AMD Phenom II dual core 3.1ghz processor, 6gb of RAM, ATI graphics, 2 SSD drives, running Linux Mint Maya MATE with NO WinTel Inside!  I also have 3 Dell laptops all running Linux Mint Maya MATE.  Right now I'm using a Vostro 1014 with a Core 2 Duo, 8gb of RAM and a 60gb Samsung SSD.  Originally came with Ubuntu 10.04, but upgraded to Mint 13 Maya MATE.
