My real name is Steven Rosenberg

  • I used Fedora in the 13-14 cycle when I got my first non-ancient laptop in 2011. I spent some time running Debian, then came back to Fedora 18 when the old laptop died suddenly and I got a new one in 2013. I continued with Fedora through the 19, 20 and 21 releases. I got a new laptop in 2017, and I stuck it out with Windows for about a year. Painful. Eventually I moved to Debian again, then CentOS Stream 8, and now I'm back with Fedora, giving Silverblue 35 a spin. I didn't think it would be as "ready" as it is, and as of March 2022, I've been with it a couple of months or so.
  • I work in digital journalism for a company that produces print newspapers as well as web sites.
  • I use Fedora both for work and at home, where I am a heavy user of multimedia.
  • Fedora's greatest strengths:
    • 1) The community. Really. I'm not just saying that. Fedora people are unfailingly welcoming, helpful, smart and just plain nice
    • 2) This is a great system for new hardware, offering new kernels throughout the release cycle in an environment with more stability than you might expect
    • 3) Fedora offers a great development environment
    • 4) Fedora's Anaconda installer allows you to create a fully encrypted Linux system in a dual-boot environment, something not possible with the Debian and Ubuntu installers. (Note: You can also do this in RHEL/CentOS/Alma/Rocky)

Why "passthejoe"?

I love the music of Joe Pass and coffee, the drink.
