As you start gaining more experience with Linux, you might want to consider answering whatever questions you could on the various forums, even AskUbuntu. You know, contribute back to the community.
When you’re automating your workflows, you’ll be writing (shell) scripts. Maybe open source those scripts and blog about them so that other can use them and maybe even help better them.
This is, put simply, how the open source community grows. People like you, who switch to open source from closed source for a reason, can really help the open source community because there may be more people facing similar issues with closed source systems.
I’ve being using only open source tools for ages now, and it’s peaceful (mostly). What do you think? Could you possibly contribute back to the community? I know you will.
