Hi there, new user, and welcome! Please, tell us about yourself! It’s not mandatory - so feel free to skip any questions if you like.
- Who are you?
- Where do you live?
- What do you do for a living?
- How do you use Chakra?
- How did you find out about Chakra?
- What are you previous experiences with Linux, GNU, KDE and FLOSS in general?
My name is Hans Tovetjärn and I go by the nickname “totte”.
I grew up and live in the northern part of Sweden - having access and living near vast forests and the mountain range means a lot to me.
I used to work in software development, but after a change of heart about two years ago I decided to go back to school and pursue a degree in mathematics instead. It felt like a more natural choice to me and I find the subject in general to be more straightforward.
I installed Chakra on my laptop about five years ago, and mostly use it for software development - C++ and Python, primarily.
I believe that I found out about Chakra early on, but until around 2011 or 2012 I didn’t fully appreciate the primary principles found in Qt and KDE, so in the summer of 2012 (if my memory serves me right) I transitioned from Arch Linux to Chakra.
My previous experiences with GNU/Linux has in general been a positive one. Earlier I used Mac OS X, but due to difficulties in installing and maintaining certain GNU and Apache software I started using virtual private servers with FreeBSD and Debian. From there I eventually made the leap to using it on my desktop and laptops as well.
