...making Linux just a little more fun!
Mike is a member of The Answer Gang.
Mike works as a Research and Development Engineer in Surrey,
England. His first experience of Unix was in 1990 at the University of
Kent in Canterbury (UKC) where he also came across Linux in 1992. He has
been running Linux systems at home and at work since 1996, starting with
Slackware 96, although he now tends to prefer RedHat. He spends as much
of his work time as possible writing code for Linux and Solaris, although
unfortunately most of it is commercially confidential. Having learnt a lot
from other people, Mike hopes to repay some of the debt by contributing to
the Linux community through TAG. He also regularly contributes to C-Vu,
the bi-monthly magazine produced by ACCU.
