My name is Ravi Saive from India, and I am the creator of TecMint and LinuxSay. I’ve more than 7 yrs of exprience in Linux and Open Source technologies, who makes a living on the internet.

I think I am the luckiest person on this planet, because I’ve a loving family, good friends, and a beautiful platform called ‘Linux’, which allows me to spend most of the time by doing geeky stuff such as Programming and Scripting with CLI (Command Line Interface).

At night, I play on my assorted Linux and Sun solaris boxes. All my computers run on CentOS, Fedora, RedHat Enterprise 7,6 and Debian 8. One of my machines is a silent computer in a toolbox. XEmacs is my editor of choice. I used vi for years at the start of my career and have done my time. Although, to be honest, I still use “vi” daily.

I also attempt to play the acoustic guitar.

And here is a picture of mine…


Hello Ravi,

My name is Marin Todorov and I’m from Bulgaria, Europe. Currently I work as a system administrator in a hosting company. My previous experience include web hosting technical support in another hosting company and later on Technical Support Supervisor. Right now I also work as freelance writer and my articles can also be find on sites such as TecMint :wink:

I’m crazy about technology and like to play and experiment with all kinds of gadgets. My personal laptop is mac with OS X, but I also have some older machine such as Asus laptop without active display that I use as a media center at home. I also use Raspberry PI 2 for different home projects of mine. My favorite Linux distro is LinuxMint, still I also work on CentOS (both server and desktop).

In the beginning of 2015 I also earned a Linux Foundation System Administrator certificate.

I like playing different video games and extreme sports such as aggressive inline skating.


My name is Gabriel Cánepa and I live in Villa Mercedes, a city in central Argentina. As my LinkedIn profile says, I’m a GNU/Linux system administrator and web developer. I work for a software firm whose main client is one of the biggest consumer products company in the world.

Here’s a picture of me:

My favorite Linux desktop distribution is Linux Mint and CentOS for servers. As far as personal life goes, I have been blessed with a beautiful family - wife and 2 daughters. We are members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, and the assurance that our family can be together forever helps us to be happy and shapes our daily choices.

On a side note, I play the piano and the guitar. Music has also been an important part of my life since my early childhood.


Hi guys! :grinning:

My name is Saša (Sasha) and I’m from Republika Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina. I started using Linux a few years back, but unlike most of you here I’m neither a programmer nor sysadmin. Actually, I worked as an NCO in the armed forces for 15 years, and then as a teacher in a high school. At the moment I don’t work - it’s quite tough here - but like Marin, I’m crazy about everything technology (and FOSS primarily), and I also signed up for LFCS Certification last month. So, Marin, I might have a few of questions for you. :wink:

My passion is online learning. I forgot to say that I am also a British Council moderator/trainer for Teacher Training courses. The courses are all 100% online and we use Moodle as LMS. My plans are to, first complete sysadmin training with Linux Foundation and then start my own elearning business using Moodle for training. I would like to offer three areas for training in the beginning: Linux and programming for beginners in my native language (unfortunately very few people here speak English - let alone understand technical terminology), Communication skills and English Language. I would also like to practice system administration and learn some programming too.

So as you can see I have quite a lot on my plate, but I’ll have to take it one step at a time.

I’m married with two kids (son and daughter).


Hi Guys!

My name is Raghavendra and my friends call me as raghu and I’m from Hyderabad. Actually i started my carrier with windows after with in a short time i fell in love with linux and i shifted by carrier to linux.

My name is Aaron Kili Kisinga from Kampala, Uganda, in East Africa, and am a student of Computer science in Makerere University. I have used Linux and FOSS for almost 2 years now.

I love to use Linux first of all because it is free and there are a lot of free resources on the Internet such as Tecmint and Linuxsay that anyone can access to learn Linux.

The most interesting thing in IT and Computing, technology that i have known, i love to work with is Linux. I gained more interest in learning Linux when i discovered Tecmint and i will never look back.
I have been using Kubuntu, Kali Linux and now Fedora. . I enjoy using the Terminal because it gives one more control over a computer system than GUIs.

I hope to get my first Linux certification from Tecmint and i thank Ravi Save and the rest of the Tecmint family for supporting the open source world by setting up a good platform, Tecmint where we can all share knowledge and benefit from each other.

I love reading, playing FIFA and listening to music.
