I hopefully am not the only Linux user as far as I've considered inside Iran but I think am the only Vector Linux user of this country seems like I've been the fastest to switch in OS's, Or may be the others are just hiding themselves or using other distros.
I really liked this distro, totally working with linux is great, unfortunately I just don't know how to work well. I'm sure I'll catch something someday But not yet cause I've using Mac for 7 years but unfortunately I've lost my notebook (Macbook) and I'm missing it a lot, But in this 7 years I never gone through Terminal in mac except some copy & pastes of some commands like Hidden Show or what... So UNFORTUNATELY I'm a bit down about what I could be in linux distros. After all This is what I am, and about my country I can tell you is not as huge as U.S. or russia or china but it is the 17th biggest country of earth and as they said travelling here is like free for you, I mean not as free as FREE is but cheap. Unfortunately renting is a bit more than what you expected, for what you want inside Tehran, the capital, is in good places about 50$ per day with breakfast and some more like what you've said but you can find some other cheaper places in downtown even for 20$ per day... Other cities are even cheaper sometimes. About our culture we grew up culturally especially in Tehran, I think so, but the problem of ISLAMIC republic still with us specially for women and girls to do mandatory Islamic dress like scarf on their heads or whatever which is sometimes specially in warm humidity climates we have over some parts of the country is annoying for them, more painful than that is drinking and smoking which is totally banned outside of the houses and there's no Bars nor Clubs here, but in fact we got some inside House parties which everything is O.K. to do there. each weekend we friends come together in ones house to make that party till the morning light sometimes and if there is a guest we will getting to know each others and will be appreciate them to come to our party for the first time and invite them to come to visit us some other times as well.
Hopefully we're living life here normally and if any of you there want to come along here for visit, stay or tripping around the country Each of Iranians would be glad to be their guest to stay in their houses for long trips till you find the place for yourself, let alone me, who I can call you as my new colleagues...
About business in Iran and job opportunities I can state that everywhere is not the same if you find someone who is a Master you'll have the choice to be in a job or what, if not you can have a little chance to do so, but you can have some cheap jobs for your cheap degree. (Educational) Here we do care to educations in jobs of course... where I dropped out of university and now unfortunately I don't got a good job. But for business men here is a ideal place to work on... Shhh! don't tell this to no one else.
I'm trying to somehow open up an small office, I might need your help for future terms.
