At the end of 2005, i got sick of searching for people from Quebec interested in Ubuntu. There was the CanadianTeam and the FrenchTeam but no QuebecTeam and nothing was even close to it. So i started with the CanadianTeam, i translated their pages on the FrenchTeam's wiki. I found a few people with this approach but there was something wrong about it so i thought about starting a QuebecTeam myself. At that time i decided to wait for that.

The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, most of my contribution to Ubuntu is on the QuebecTeam/WebAdminLog and of course, i am the new owner of the Loco-Drupal Developpement Team: https://edge.launchpad.net/~loco-drupal-dev. I also took over the Loco-Drupal project: https://edge.launchpad.net/loco-drupal. For me it is a way to put my work on ubuntu-qc.org back to the community. The web site is at: http://www.ubuntu-qc.org/, i contributed everything i did for the web site by creating what is now known as [[UbuntuDrupal|Ubuntu Drupal]]. It is now maintained by someone else because with my anxiety problems i could not continue the work by myself.

I the near futur i think it would help a lot if they're was an easy way to find and talk to Ubunteros from my area(as well as any other areas...). As for what i see for the futur, i think we need to find a way to promote local projects, i was thinking about creating a fundation in Quebec, to enable people to give money to local projects, and of course it would really help to be able to give back tax receipts. == Magog Computer Club ==

I started with Slackware in 1994(i think), one of my friend, introduced me to it. It was still text-based floppy install.. Ah the old days.. Anyway, i have been using Linux since that day. I started with Slackware in 1994(more or less), floppy based installation i remember... :), one of my friend, introduced me to it.

I have an Obsessive–compulsive disorder, and no it did not stop me from learning and using Linux. In fact i think that Linux became an obsession for me.

How i got involved in the creation of the Ubuntu Quebec Team

At the end of 2005, i got sick of searching for people from Quebec interested in Ubuntu. There was the CanadianTeam and the FrenchTeam but no QuebecTeam and nothing was even close to it. So i started with the CanadianTeam, i translated their pages on the FrenchTeam's wiki. I found a few people with this approach but there was something wrong about it so i thought about starting a QuebecTeam myself. At that time i decided to wait for that. Later a suggestion from FabianRodriguez compelled me to do it; So i did, i Started the QuebecTeam with the help from DanielRobitaille, PatrickHétu and FabianRodriguez.
