I am pretty new to Linux , I have worked a bit with Unix but it was mostly stuff like vi with a bit of shell and awk programming.
I have only recently started working as a trainee engineer for a VLSI company. I use Linux as a platform for running my simulations and really had to struggle with it. Nevertheless the more I struggle with it, the more I love it. I think as an OS, Linux is extremely rich in features, esp file handling provided you know how to use these features. Most of the work I do on Linux is for evaluation reasons, both for the OS as well as the front end software we use for simulating our designs.
I do not claim to be any sort of authority on Linux, nor have I totally stopped using Windows. I feel both have a lot to offer the user.
My programming knowledge is rudimentary, I do intend to learn C as well as perl. I cannot say how soon as my work is hardware oriented.
That's about it.
