“Eerie Linux” begun in 2011 as a distribution experiment to teach myself more about Linux. About a year later I decided to start blogging about the things that I played with as they might or might not be of interest for other people. I wanted to build an experimental Linux distribution and document that process in the blog.
My goal has since shifted from creating that distro (I’ve reached that goal with E5 after all) to exploring the various aspects of Unix-like systems in general. While I had time to write up several posts a month during my studies, I have a family and a regular work now so free time is a lot more scarce now.
At work I have some FreeBSD machines to administer – and while it was a bit strange at first, my curiosity for things beside Linux was strong enough to overcome the initial problems and keep digging into that. Since I grew more and more unhappy with the general situation in the Linux world, I started looking seriously at using *BSD at home, too.
While I haven’t left Linux completely, my focus is now clearly on the BSD side of things. And I must say: I enjoy being there!
