New team members!

May I introduce our new team members: Scott Quier, and Sam Riggs.

Welcome to the team!


Scott Quier


Scott Quier
forum administrator, tester.

I’ve been married for almost 35 years to my best friend and, I have a son who is a US Army veteran and an IT consultant. I’m a US Air Force veteran, I’ve studied Chemistry, Business Administration, Computer Resource Protection, and I’ve been an IT consultant and database designer/developer for 20+ years.

My first exposure to Linux was in 2003 but found it lacking in tools to support my hobby/passion (photography). It was my son who reintroduced me to Linux at that end of 2012; started with Linux Mint, played with LMDE, Ubuntu, openSUSE, Fedora, etc. I stumbled on SoldyXK in the March/April 2013 time-frame and been here ever since. Linux and Debian/SolydXK are still so new to me I’m learning something every day!



Sam Riggs


Sam Riggs
graphical designer, project leader.

I have been an artist all my life, and have been working as a graphical designer for various companies, and also as a freelancer.

When computers took over the art world, I had to learn how to use them. This was also the time when I started studying programming and web development. Currently I develop apps for Android, which for me is a perfect mixture of artwork and programming. I discovered Linux in 2009 and haven’t turned back since. To create my artwork I solely use open source art programs.
