Jeff Root's first computer was an IBM System 3, programmed in FORTRAN IV using 64-column punch cards. His first love was his Apple ][e, which still sees occasional use today. Jeff never learned BASIC, preferring the "no excuses" nature of assembly language instead.

Jeff started using Linux with Yggdrasil, which was a "run from CD" distribution back in the days of kernel 1.1.13. This was necessary, since Jeff's computer had no hard drive. He's now a dedicated Debian GNU/Linux user, but keeps a Damn Small Linux pendrive handy.

He currently works as a programmer for a semiconductor maker in Pocatello, Idaho. In a previous life, he tested bombers for the USAF.
