Hello everyone

Post by manoaratefy » Wed Jan 30, 2019 3:40 am

Hello,

I'm a Linux fan and I decided since 2014 to use Linux all the time. However, it is not easy, especially with simulations software and multimedia software. And when gaming. So, I use dual boot Windows 10 & Linux Mint 19 (until Wine works fine with).

I'm the CEO of a web hosting company. I love Linux Mint for desktop computers and I use both CentOS & Debian on servers (CentOS for virtualization and Debian for web/mail servers).

I recycle old computers with Linux. My own computer is a recycled Sony VAIO laptop. I bought it when it didn't work well (some hardware issues), and I refurbished it. Then, I replaced the CPU with a Core i5 (the old is Pentium Dual Core) to allow performing 64-bit virtualization.
