Who I am

My name John Mazer from Wilkes-Barre, PA I am a programmer from Florida where I helped create Widows programs in Visual Studio VB mostly I was hired by a small company in Pennsylvania so I moved. I hated it so I was looking for a new job while continuing my Education in the UofS (University of Scranton) I took Computer Science. I graduated with Masters in Computer Science.

My Ubuntu story

I was going in for an interview when I saw something neat, fresh on the Receptionist Computer A circle with people holding hands. I thought is was very new so The Owner came out and asked me back to his desk I seen about 6 computers on his desk. I have used windows, RedHat and Fedora I heard of Ubuntu, but never used it. I asked him what systems he uses he Ubuntu, and out of the desk he pulled out a disk and gave it to me. He hired me, and he gave me my new OS Ubuntu 8.10 I now have Ubuntu Jaunty 9.04 on my laptop. His name is Leo Jackson.
