about me

I am a Hungarian Ubuntu LoCo activist. I was born in 1969. I live in Budapest, and I work for MTVSZ/Friends of the Earth Hungary as GMO and Biomass campaigner. I am free sortware advocate. I've been using linux since 1999 and Ubuntu since 2004. One of the key reason for me to swith to Ubuntu that I really like the Ubuntu philosophy. I try to promote Ubuntu among NGOs and help the community life since I'm active in several NGOs and communities. regarding my hobby I'm an amateur astronomer: I regularly observe variable stars.


András Orvos (DcNdrew): Fidusz helped the Hungarian Ubuntu Community with the T-shirt project by organizing it, storing the T-shirts and pullovers. I think he deserved to be a Member of the Hungarian Ubuntu Community.

Gábor Királyvári (kiri): fidusz is a great organizer, we could see this when he dealt with the T-shirt project a while ago. Fidusz helped me to deepen my knowledge on Ubuntu when I was a beginner and switched from the other OS. Ubuntu distribution in a summer festival is also a nice activity.
