Our Story

OSTechNix (Open Source, Technology, Nix*) was founded in 2012 by Senthilkumar Palani (also known as SK), a Linux systems administrator and open-source software enthusiast. As a personal blog, OSTechNix initially started as a way for SK to share his experiences with Linux and open-source software. Over time, the blog grew in popularity and began to attract other Linux enthusiasts and open-source software developers.

Today, OSTechNix is maintained by a team of technical writers, developers, and Linux enthusiasts from around the world. Our mission to become a place where we could build on the extensive knowledge of our technical writers, to make our website the ideal place where we can publish the Latest News, How-to articles, Tutorials and Tips & Tricks about Free and Open-Source software and technology.

Our audience is primarily targeted to free and open-source technology users, Linux/Unix enthusiasts, IT professionals and amateurs. We always aim to deliver our readers the most accurate information and guides available, in a simple easy-to-read and follow format. We try to keep all the articles that we publish professional, yet not too complex so that anyone who sits down to read it can potentially follow it without too much confusion or complexity.
