Operating Systems

Linux (Ubuntu):
My entire web development work flow is set up in Linux. I also use Linux for various projects in school when programming languages behave nicer in Linux than Windows.

My main workstation at home runs Windows currently and I have always been a Windows user. Recently I mostly just use Windows to open up a Ubuntu virtual machine.

Mac OS:
I use a MacBook Pro for taking to class and our entire office at work is iMacs so I am quite familiar with managing Mac OS from a simple admin scenario as well. I also have a simple web development work flow on my MacBook Pro for when I cannot be at my main workstation.
