Solus, Core i7, 16GB of RAM, nVidia GTX 1080, and TOO much storage believe it or not. I found out about Solus Project from the Jupiter Broadcasting show, Linux Unplugged. I tried it now and then, keeping it on a spare laptop to see what new developments were happening. A lot has changed in my needs and workflow, and Solus offers an incredible amount of flexibility for working on software and DevOps style tasks.

I have a Ryzen rig that's running Fedora as low as it'll go (Server Edition) and two Dell computers that have a ton of RAM, two Xeon processors, and tens of Terabytes of storage. Both are running CentOS 7 with the latest mainline kernel .

When I'm hanging out on the couch or on the go, I have a 2015 Macbook Pro. Most of the time it's running OS X, sometimes it's running Fedora 28.

My favorite tools right now are IntelliJ, RubyMine, VS Code, Meld, and the good ol' Terminal! I'm often running Vim locally or in a remote server. I have a couple of NFS shares that I use for working on big projects remotely.

Let me know if you have any questions or need help troubleshooting a Linux install!

Desktop - Windows 10, i7 5820K, 32GB or RAM, nVidia GTX 980TI, 700GB of SSD storage and 2TB of HDD storage. Mostly used to run a ton of VMs with VMWare Workstation for my labs, it also serves as my main gaming rig.

When I'm feeling lazy and just want to lay about, I'm either on my Thinkpad X1 Carbon running which ever Linux distro im hooked on that month or my Mac Book Pro. I have another custom built gaming rig that I built using spare parts from my previous builds that functions as a home media center, file server, and hosts any VMs that I want running 24/7.
