I am using Linux for quite a while now. Ubuntu came to my attention primary because of the slogan "linux for human beings" and the philosophy behind.

In my opinion every human being should have free access to knowledge. Ubuntu is on the path to accomplish this and I want to play a little role in this venture.

Maybe, if we all do a little for this world we can change it.

Plans for my future contributions to Ubuntu:

  • Support of German LoCo-Team

  • User-Support, real-life and via e-mail
