Joe Leuzzi – Editor
Joe started his love of computers back when he was in grade school when he started programming basic back on a TRS-80 at the local library. His passion for computers grew as he got older and he was able to break into the computer industry doing computer repair while attending Kent State University. After working in the computer industry for several years after college, he tried several other occupations like running his own business, and becoming an accountant, but his passion for computers was still deeply inside him. One day while working for a Fortune 500 company he decided to change careers and get back into computers and for the past 10 years has enjoyed a great administration career with both Linux and Windows based pc’s.

Greg Martin – Contributor/Podcaster
Greg’s first experience with Linux was back in 2006 with RedHat 9 on a seriously crappy Gateway desktop. After having a love hate relationship with it and jumping back and forth between it and XP for quite a while, he finally committed to Linux when he first came across Ubuntu way back in the day. Discovering that he didn’t quite like the was managing packages felt on a Debian based distro, Greg jumped to Fedora and has been a little bit of a fanboy ever since. These days he tries to use Linux for everything he enjoys doing – podcasting, gaming, programming and graphic design.
Outside of Linux, Greg is an avid hobbyist musician, gamer and loud mouth who enjoy shaving a good time with good company.
