Linux is the Future. Learn it

3


3 per session - Virtual OK

I can help you make sense of the weird, wild, wonderful world of alternative operating systems. By alternative, I mean not Windows, with all its security nightmares and inefficiencies, and not MacOS, with all its bloat and associated expense.

The vast majority of computer users don't need 'for-pay' operating systems and could benefit from leaving them behind. Unless you have an application you must use for your profession, such as Adobe Creative Suite stuff, or a specific 3D modeling suite, odds are you're selling yourself short by continuing to use insecure, largely irrelevant operating systems.

If you have a question about how to do a thing or want to know what you can do to start out in the open source world, I can point you in the right direction.

I can teach you the command line, the nuances of the GUI, how to find, add, update, and even use software that you need not pay for.

Training & Qualifications


I have used Unix and *nix type operating systems since I was young. Linux came along in the 90's and I have never looked back. I can still do stuff with Windows but it's no longer necessary in all but extreme niche cases. I have used almost all of the major distributions but cut my teeth on Slackware in the early days. I was born on the command line and learned how to set up multiple monitor systems before it was an automated process.

In short, I know Linux.

Availability & Preferences


Roughly 9 AM to Midnight

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Aaron Nye

I've worked in the web realm for most of my adult life (and even as a kid in a limited capacity). I have a head full of useless information and am a valuable asset on any bar trivia team. I have w...orked with Wordpress since it was just a template driven blog engine and have written more than my fair share of plugins and themes. I can do art as well as code and enjoy both equally. I have designed company logos for billion dollar companies, websites for nonprofits, app interfaces for mobile phones, and coded large parts of big software projects as well. I used to work for a federal agency which shall remain nameless but I quit for philosophical/ moral reasons. I'm also a capable writer. I write satire and humor pieces for several websites as well as serious research pieces where the interpretation of scientific studies is a requirement. I've done and enjoyed creative writing including screenplays and commercial screenplays. I enjoy the written word and feel that it's every bit an art form. I'm well read and enjoy lofty intellectual discussions. I am a logical thinker with an artistic bent so I can talk about philosophy, comparative religion, science, art, prose, poetry, cooking, and damn near anything else that catches your fancy. I love listening to people sharing their passion. I've never had a boring conversation with someone about anything they love. I've lived a lot of life and will continue to learn as I go. Ask me how I can help you because I can't list all the skills I actually have here.show more
