Seldom without a computer of some sort since graduating from the University of British Columbia in 1978, I have been a full-time Linux user since 2005, a full-time Solaris and SunOS user from 1986 through 2005, and UNIX System V user before that.
Aside from that, I spend a considerable amount of time writing proposals, technical reports and - of course - stuff on https://www.opensource.com. Up to the early 1990s, all that was done with vi and troff/groff. I used Microsoft Word for awhile but moved to StarOffice as soon as it became available. These days I use LibreOffice, with great pleasure.
Most of my current work is related to a company I co-own with a Chilean partner. This company, TECO Group SpA, consults to industry, government and communities in relation to "trickle up development". You can read more about it at http://www.tecogroup.cl.
My three grown children are also all Linux users. Pass it on!
