Arch Linux... period

I'm a regular reader of a certain blog, OMGubuntu. It was one of the best places to keep up to date about the Ubuntu world and I have learned quite a lot by visiting there. Take a break and check out the blog.

Best draft tool for Linux

As a civil engineer, I was sceptical about my switch to Linux in the Office environment. Specially as I have to deal with a lot CAD drawings on a daily basis. Most importantly these come in dwg format, the propriety file format used and abused by AutoDesk in their flagship product AutoCAD. A drafts man coming from the Windows environment might find it hard to let go of AutoCAD. It was a daunting task and it was all going uphill until I came across DraftSight.

Switch from Windows

Linux has come a long way...
No I'm not going to start this article like that. Maybe the road taken by Linux is long but compare that with a more successful and commercial propierity operating system and you might wonder why Linux has taken so long to arrive.
That is certainly a question I wonder out loud, specially when wondering about the limits I faced when using Linux as a Civil Engineer (my lesser known alter ego... ahem)

So it begins...

This blog is back... For the past 2 years I have wandered paths that are not familiar to me, hoping to find some kind of solace that I thought would exist in those foreign grounds. But a long walk, straying off course, getting back on top to fall down again has finally ended. I have finally strolled into familiar surroundings and my path is more clear, more precise and more solemn.
In those past two years, I have learned, experienced and educated myself. I have fought battles, won and lost some. I have made friends and enemies, friends out of enemies and enemies out of those parading as temporary friends.
This time around, this blog will have purpose and cater for those readers who have my interests. If you have enjoyed before, this time around will be a treat and you will be entertained. Here is what to expect and what's being left out of the blog.
