My name is Ian MacGregor, I use the nickname "ardchoille" online, and I am a member of Clan Gregor. My nickname (ardchoille) was taken from the phrase "Ard Choille!", which is Scottish Gaelic for "To the high trees!" - the war cry of my clan.

I served in the US Navy, as a field medic (NEC HM-8404), where I visited several countries and participated in UNITAS. Fraternities I joined during my time in the US Navy include Order of the Golden Dragon (crossed the international date line), Order of the Ditch (passed through the panama canal), Order of the Shellback (crossed the equator). I also served in the Texas Army National Guard.

I have been using computers since 1983 and building computers since 2001. I have been using Linux since it became my primary operating system in 2001. I started my Linux journey with Debian GNU/Linux. From there I went on to use Fedora Core (fc1, fc2, fc3, fc4), Mandrake Linux (now Mandriva), MEPIS, Ubuntu, CentOS and am currently using Fedora 13. Fedora seems to be the best distro for me due to its sane defaults and its outstanding community.
