Skills

Skills

Mac OSX

I am new to mac. But I use it for school and I have taken a lot of classes on how to use it. I can navigate around it with no problem. I would say i know the basics to get the job done. But that's it.

Ubuntu

I have been playing around with Ubuntu for a few years now. And I love this OS. It has so  much potential if i could just get proprietary software makers to make stuff for it. Anyway i can navigate my way around this OS also. I can do some terminal stuff. And if i don't know how to do something I can always find it on the internet. I'm a good self learner.

Windows

I am very fluent with window operating systems. I know how to navigate it, remove viruses manually if need be. Anything to do with just the operating system I can do with ease.
