About Me

I'm a forty something information technology professional and Linux enthusiast. I live in Hampshire, England, with my wife and daughter. I've been using Linux since 1995 and my first experience with Ubuntu was 4.10 (Warty Warthog). Prior to Ubuntu I used Yggdrasil, Slackware, Redhat, CRUX and Fedora. Ubuntu was my only workstation operating system from late 2004 until early 2012, when I switched to Arch Linux for my workstations.

Things I do for Ubuntu

I have recently co-founded Ubuntu MATE and am currently the project lead. I am keen that Ubuntu MATE get recognised as an official Ubuntu flavor. Since starting work on Ubuntu MATE I have contributed several merge propsals to Ubuntu.

External Stuff

Future Work

  • Establish a larger team of regular contributors for Ubuntu MATE.
  • Refine Ubuntu MATE, with regard to user experience and artwork.

Room for Improvement

There are areas where I'd like to improve myself and my own knowledge:

  • More development using GObject Introspection.
