About Me

My name is Chris Boot, and I’m a Freelance Linux Systems Engineer and computer geek. I’ve been using Linux since 1998. I finished a BSc (Hons) Computing Science degree at the University of Huddersfield in May 2006. I have worked as a Linux Systems Administrator for several companies since.

If you are looking for the photographer also called Chris Boot, you’ve come to the wrong place.

I was born in London, but when I was two my family moved near Nice, France. While living there I went to the local French school for a few years, but spent most of my school years at the International School of Nice, before moving to the UK and starting my degree. I met Jess at Uni, and you can get the other side of the story on her blog, Revolutionary Rants.

I’m a long-term Mac, Linux, and Windows user, and have a keen interest in learning about anything that I don’t yet know about. My home network consists of a great number of computers running Mac OS X, Linux, and Windows. My favourite Linux distribution is Debian, although I’ve used many various distros including Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS.
