Hello, World! Back to Home (Ubuntu), start writing [post from 17.03.2018]


Today is a BIG day. I finally decided to back to Linux as a primary development machine and start writing about my development adventures publicly.

First about Linux. I am big fan of this OS especially CentOS. From first days of my development life I have tested a lot of dists of it. I almost knew every changes in Fedora, tested tons of live dists and played a lot with FreeBSD. But, all this, was not as serious as Linux administration or so on. Serious part was my tries to understand architecture of Minix and writing own one on Assembler (and actually I did based on some custom open sourced version of it and it actually launched from boot). It was very fun, interesting and challenging for newbie. Unix/Linux is a whole new world and I am very happy that I have been very small, unknown part of it.

Then, I start writing code in .NET Framework and left all these for a while. I always had a version of Ubuntu running on my test machine but it was not daily usage experience. With tools like Vagrant/Docker you can easily run and test everything from Windows as a host machine. But it is not a actual using of Linux.

So, today, 17.03.2018, I decided to move to Linux/Ubuntu and again, make it my primary OS. For last years I code 90% on Python so I will not lose anything. For very urgent customer related things I have additional PC running Windows and few Windows VMs running on Windows Azure, so I will not miss it a lot 🙂

About writing. I noticed that when I write my thoughts about the technologies used, it’s easier for me to remember them later. Thus, I decided to do it public. It is not blogging and not as big as articles. Just small notes with few descriptions.

Let’s see how it goes 🙂
