About Michael St. John

Michael St. John is a System Engineer in Albuquerque, NM. I am working with Linux since 1994 and started with the Linux Distribution Slackware. I used Slackware till I needed and more flexible and easier way to maintain my systems and I looked into Debian/Ubuntu and loved Ubuntu right away. I don't have to worry any longer about solving dependencies or compiling code every time an update was available to patch exploits or bugs and that when Ubuntu 8.04 was just released and the rest is history.
