Please forgive me for not having introduced myself to you when I started the first topic a year ago. I am also sorry for my longer text.
My name is Gustavo. I am from São Paulo, Brazil. I am deaf-born and 29 years old. I am a computer science student and I am going to be graduated this year end. Then I will study Astronomy or Aerospace Engineering.
I am a Linux user for 8 years and Manjaro user for 2 years and half.
I started autodidactically computer and foreign languages (English, French, German, Italian and Spanish) since 9 and 11 years old in 1998 and 2000. My first computer was my uncle’s IBM white computer with Windows 95 and the second was my stepfather’s computer with Windows 2000. On this computer, Babylon Dictionary, Ectaco and Webster were my first dictionary programs to study English. In 2001, my first language-unrelated program was Stellarium for studying Astronomy.
Only in 2009, at 21 years old, I explored the open source programs. GIMP and Inkscape were the first. Then I explored the world of internet markup languages. I discovered Ubuntu 9.10 CD in my stepfather’s box, but he forbade me of exploring that world.
The following year, because of college, I got independant and went to live with my grandparents. Then I remembered that CD and explored Ubuntu 10.10 on a Dell Inspiron laptop, under the recommendation of an IT technician, who helped me to type the commands. I adventured myself with the terminal.
I also used Arch Linux, Debian, elementary OS, Linux Mint, openSUSE and Ubuntu during 8 years.
Today I own a Mac mini with Deepin OS (external HD) and Kali Linux (another external HD) and a HP laptop with Manjaro. I have virtual machines of Arch Linux, Debian and Linux Mint.
If you ask why I am using Kali Linux as it is dangerous.
Because I am also studying ethical hacker for defending my college’s athletic association of the which I am a member, against the attacks, so the college’s athletic association site has been hacked twice.
I use Manjaro for programming, analysing the compatibility and faults of apps and of icons (I am icons theme designer) in the KDE environment, and for uploading packages to AUR, and Deepin OS for designing, programming and uploading a package to PPA.
