I've grown up with computers around me my whole life. I started programming when I was a kid, and stuck with it ever since. I came across Linux around 1999 and have enjoyed working with it ever since.

For a job, I get to write software that runs on embedded Linux devices. I do everything from working on low-level drivers to writing shell scripts and even web apps.

comment What is the difference between Amazon Linux and RedHat Enterprise Linux on AWS EC2?
@jarmond's comment is not entirely accurate. The page claimed no affiliation with RedHat, Inc and stated that it is not RHEL, which is technically accurate. It stated that for legal reasons (however, the legal situation is different now). CentOS was and is derived from RHEL. Read more about it here: centos.org/about.

comment How to get desired FireFox last tab behavior?
I believe this no longer works, but it could be some strange interaction with my other extensions.
