About me

I’m a 18-year-old student from Hungary. I installed my first Linux distro (Mandrake) in summer 2002. Then I used SuSE before changing to Debian. Since Hoary (5.04) I use Ubuntu, and I'm satisfied with it.

My name is Őry Máté /IPA: øːri maːteː/ in Hungarian (eastern) name order, which is Máté Őry (or lazily Mate Ory) in the ‘western’ fashion. Please, do not call me Ory, it’s my family name.
