Our Story

Linuxiac is a media platform dedicated to publishing the latest news from the Linux world and Open Source software. Here you will find mostly articles about Linux in general.

In addition to news coverage, Linuxiac also provides how-to articles, application reviews, and tips & tricks. Covered topics include Linux distributions, desktop customization, system administration, open-source tools, virtualization, etc.

Linuxiac is a relatively new, fast-growing website on the Linux subject. Founder Bobby Borisov launched Linuxiac in May 2020, and the website quickly became a trusted source for Linux news, tutorials, and tips & tricks.

Linuxiac caters to both novice and experienced Linux users. Our audience is primarily targeted to Free and Open Source technology users, Linux enthusiasts, IT professionals, and amateurs.

We aim to bring you Linux news, tutorials, and tips & tricks that you would value. Our team’s news stories are written or sourced from reputed news sources.

We are committed to you, our readers, and will not let you down. We typically go through multiple rounds of many revisions for every article, trying to perfect the clarity and accuracy of the writing. In addition, before writing an article, we test everything as long as possible.

So, we never suggest anything without having it tested by us and always investigating new ways to do things better.

Our Team

We are a couple of open-source lovers and not a large corporation. Meet the team behind Linuxiac.com.

Bobby Borisov

Bobby Borisov is the founder, owner, and the Editor-in-Chief of Linuxiac. The man who lives and breathes Linux. The eternal optimist who believes that the best is yet to come.

Before he started linuxiac.com, Bobby worked in the IT industry for close to 20 years. He has worked for both small businesses and large multi-national enterprises.

As a hardcore Linux fan, Bobby loves technology and has always had a flair for teaching. Having worked with Open Source technology all his career, Bobby now focuses on making Linux easier for others.

Over the last 10+ years, you will find nothing but Arch Linux on his desktop machines. Well, attempts to convince him to try something different continue.

Alex Penev

Alex Penev is a former career Linux Systems Administrator turned DevOps Engineer with 15 years of experience and counting. He loves writing about technology, especially about Linux and Open Source.

On top of that, Alex occupies the weird space between content creation and marketing strategy. He is always trying to position himself as an intermediary voice between Bobby, constantly spewing ideas and what actually needs to be delivered to our readers.

He primarily uses Fedora and Ubuntu but keeps trying other distributions for reviews published on Linuxiac.

Brian Borisoff

Brian Borisoff has more than 25 years of experience in hardware engineering and is always looking for the next scoop. As an old-school UNIX fan, his machines are powered by FreeBSD, but curiosity drives him to test various Linux distributions, mainly server-oriented ones, constantly.

In fact, Brian is our REAL system administrator, who is awake at 2 am to fix the synchronization issue between our U.S.-based servers. Incomprehensibly for us, Brian nevertheless finds time to prepare and edit articles. But, unfortunately, we still haven’t figured out how he does it.

Our Values

We believe knowledge should be free. An asset for humanity that shouldn’t have a price. We believe that any technology evolves more rapidly when more and more brains work on it. Linux is the best example, so we believe in Open Source philosophy.

We aim to serve the Linux Community in every possible way by sharing our knowledge and experience gained over the years.

P.S. Everyone is passionate about something. Our passion is called Linux!
