About Me

My name is Chris Boot, and I’m a Linux Systems Architect and all-round geek. I’ve been using Linux since 1998. I completed a BSc (Hons) Computing Science degree at the University of Huddersfield in May 2006. I am currently a Senior Technical Architect at Tiger Computing Ltd where I have been working since 2012.

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 my wife Jess at University in Huddersfield.

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 (and I am a Debian Developer), although I’ve used various other distributions including Ubuntu, Red Hat Enterprise and CentOS.
