I'm curious what the majority of Linux users are. I know many are students, some retired. But what is your career? Or what was, or will be your career?
Well, let's see...
I went to college and got a degree in geology.
Then, I joined the Army, became a paratrooper, then moved into Special Operations.
Then, I was offered a civilian job making lots of money with no bullets flying at me, so I left the Army and worked for a number of years as a systems engineer.
I've been a student part of the time in the astrophysics program at one of the local universities. Sometimes, I'm a mathematics major at a local college.
During that post-Army stretch of employment, I had a few surgeries and some lengthy hospital stays, and nearly died because of a nasty infection that necessitated another round of surgical procedures. I stopped working for about ten months to recover after that last one.
Then, I went back to work and had a couple heart attacks, so I sort of retired.
Now, I'm just a slacker who spends my time working on my home systems. Life is funny that way. I have way too many hobbies.
