Little bit about myself and my linux experience.
I started with Linux in 1999 roughly. I had picked up a second hand Red Hat book, installed it on my system and couldn’t figure out where to go from there. I would poke at it a little until 2002 when I had to use Red Hat(what was setup by someone else) to monitor a specific piece of equipment.
I switched over to slackware for a year or two, then through the recommendation of Scott Robbins I tried Arch. I haven’t looked back since.
I’m an Incident Handler for a Fortune 5 company. Doing mostly forensic analysis of suspected intrusions. I use arch to grep/awk through logs etc.. Everyone that I work with is a) Windows only b) Ubuntu nuts or c) dabbling in both. I do work with one Debian junky and I’m working on getting him converted over to Arch, but he’s resisting.
