My relationship with GNU/Linux and Ubuntu

I met this world in 2009 and tried different distributions in VMs. A year later, exasperated by some problems Windows® XP was giving to me and after an attack of madness on the immaculate partition table, I created a dual boot Windows/Ubuntu. Almost mono-operating system (just a small partition for Windows to use owned programs) from December 2010. From the middle of 2011 I added Debian GNU/Linux in dual-boot with Ubuntu. From the start of 2012 I also added ArchLinux, but Ubuntu still was my main distro. Fast forward to 2013, 6 months old computer, and I got rid of Windows: only Ubuntu (usually the Ubuntu+1 one or the latest relase), Debian (sid) and ArchLinux (for seldom experiment) are left.

Italian LoCo

Ubuntu Support in the ubuntu-it mailing list
Ubuntu Italian translator and typesetter of the Community Magazine FCM. Since 2012/06/25 approved member; since 2013/02/24 team coordinator (Launchpad team).
Ubuntu Member of the Italian Marketing Team (since 2013/06/29 approved member in the Launchpad team), with these internal project:

  • Ubuntu Administrator/founder of the Italian Social Media Team (since 2013/04/09)
    Ubuntu Writer of the Italian Newsletter (since 2013/05/01)

My main contributions are usually hidden to normal humans: I love logistic activities, so I take care of wiki pages, reorder shared directories,....


And several others, more or less important...

Future Plans

I'm currently a DD and a MOTU, which basically covers all of the main area of interests I have. Nowadays most of the FOSS contributions are done in Debian rather than in Ubuntu, but that doesn't mean I've completely lost interest in Ubuntu.

I'm planning on applying for core-dev, since in Debian I do handle some basic packages (libxml, devscripts, strip-nondetermism, some TDF/LO libraries, etc) and from time to time I do need to touch those in Ubuntu as well, so my MOTU+PPU rights are starting to get tight. Also with my role in the Backporters team, it feels weird to approve non-universe package when I don't have the right to upload them... Smile :)
