SuperCubicleWelcome to CubicleNate’s Techpad of less than generally useful information… unless you like things like, Linux, vintage computing or obscure nonsense. This site is essentially my public facing notebook so most of this is for my reference. If you happen to find something useful or utter garbage on here, please let me know.

My primary focus will be on Linux, or specifically openSUSE Linux and getting work or fun done with it. I enjoy re-purposing yesterdays “modern” hardware and make it relevant once again. Linux extends the service life of a lot of the hardware that is so often discarded before its time. I do dabble in other distributions of Linux but only to ensure that I have some level of comfort when helping other Linux users out. I tend to blather from time to time about what I am “working” on.

opensuseI am currently running openSUSE Tumbleweed on my primary machine and low powered netbooks. I put openSUSE Leap on several other machines I interact with less frequently. It is amazingly rock solid. This is a testament to the great job of the openSUSE community of developers, testers and contributors. I appreciate how running openSUSE has a low memory usage and a light weight feel, even on older hardware.

During my time of using openSUSE, I put together a recommend a Base Application Set for general usage. These are bits of software that openSUSE will not include automatically.
