My Gear

My gear

As the owner and writer for, I am regularly approached by my frequent readers. Usually it is a word of thanks for an article that I have written, or a request for help or support or advice in case of problems. But I also often get one specific type of recurring question, namely what my Linux system looks like and what gear I use. Apparently a lot of readers find it interesting to read about other people’s setup and gear, so I wrote an article about that: “My Linux Setup in 2020”.
