I am 30 year old Linux enthusiast from Prato, Tuscany, Italy. By day, I am a Free Software freelance consultant/programmer (and for this reason i constantly looking for a job). I have been using Linux (Slackware, Red Hat, Debian and finally Ubuntu) for about 10 years now. My Linux journey began when I looked for a stable system to connect to local Fidonet BBS node. In 2000, I co-founded the LUG of the my city [http://www.prato.linux.it/ PLUG - Prato Linux User Group] where i advocate Linux and Ubuntu.
Late 2004, a friend of my local LUG introduced me to Ubuntu - then version 4.10. At the time, I was using Debian and really was impressed with what Ubuntu offered and have never looked back.
Now i'm working on realtime kernel flavour (Hardy at the moment). I have provided a realtime flavour for Feisty, as external debian repositary, and for Gutsy, directly in official archives. For this effort i'm joined to Ubuntu Kernel Team (thanks BenC). I'm also member of the Ubuntu Studio Team which use realtime kernel as fundamental piece.
This month, I found the [https://launchpad.net/~ubuntu-rt Ubuntu Realtime Team]. The team have plan to support and improve Ubuntu realtime kernel flavour in order to push Ubuntu in very highly demanding business contexts (e.g. industrial automation, financial, robotics, advanced multimedia and telco).
