I, Amit Kucheria, apply for core-dev.
Who I am
I currently live in Finland and am employed by Canonical as a Kernel Engineer. I primarily concentrate on the mobile side taking care of the LPIA kernel and now ARM. Before this, I worked at Nokia leading the team working on Power Management on OMAP processors used in the Internet Tablets (770, N800, N810)
My Ubuntu story
I started with Linux in 1996 using Slackware (3.0?) and the first kernel I compiled was version 1.2.13. Having used most other major distros extensively (>1 year) since then, I settled on Ubuntu Gutsy. I've used Ubuntu since then. After Nokia, I got a chance to work on the guts of Ubuntu and I grabbed it.

Things I could do better
