I am a Junior at the University of Wisconsin - Superior studying Computer Science. I found Open Source in High School when my Intro to Programming teacher brought in a few Ubuntu CD's. It opened my eyes to free/open source software. Through some discussions at a company I worked for, a friend of mine convinced me to jump into FreeBSD from Windows XP. That day, I was compiling my own kernel (I needed SMP) and reading wiki's like we were running out of bandwidth. After falling in love with the Ports system, I decided to try something new and experiment with a few other distros over the years, but I find my loyalty with Ubuntu and always return. I am an IT Professional with a wide range of capabilities. I have used many Linux distros, Open Solaris, FreeBSD, OpenBSD, but I find my loyalty with Ubuntu and always return. My first Ubuntu was 5.10 Breezy Badger, and I have been using Ubuntu since. Windows, VMware, and OSX user by day.
