About Me

I'm a student of computer science at the Humboldt-University of Berlin]. Besides my studies, I'm working at the Technology Foundation Berlin].

Before I started my studies, I worked a few years as a bank clerk at a medium-sized cooperative bank. Back then I started a small startup with a colleague, called Sethi IT Consulting]. We're still active in developing applications for the financial sector (primarily using Lotus Notes) and offering consulting services to small and mid-sized companies of all industries.

Linux Experience

My first encounter with Linux was a Distribution by the "Linux Support Team Erlangen" back in 1996. It came with kernel 1.2.13. Needless to say, I didn't spend to much time with it, as it was too early to really work with it.

A few years later I broaden my horizon with SuSE and Debian. I did quite a few server installations, even I was still using Windows on the desktop.

Ubuntu Experience

When warty was released, I decided to start switching completly. Since 2004, Ubuntu is my operating system on the desktop.

Current Work on Ubuntu

Primarily I'm working on
