About Me

I'm Marius, but I'm better known online as Mister Q. I was born in Germany but I've also been living for some time in Guangzhou (China). I've graduated as an IT-Specialist for system integration in Germany. I've been using Linux-based operating systems for many years and my first Ubuntu installation was 11.10. I am currently working as an IT-Consultant for a big IT consulting company.

Things I do for Ubuntu


  • I'm writing for a blog called UbuntuFun mainly focused on news about Ubuntu Desktop and Phones.

  • I am on the organisation team for Ubucon Europe 2016 in Essen.
  • I sponsored a bq Aquaris E4.5 Ubuntu Edition phone for a contest on my blog.
  • I plan to attend UbuCon Europe 2016 in Essen (and also give a talk there).


  • I own several desktops, laptops, servers, phones and tablets running various stable and unstable releases of Ubuntu, and provide feedback.
  • I wrote various articles about Ubuntu Touch and the bq/Meizu phones on UbuntuFun.

  • I provided feedback/tests/translations for the Ubuntu Phone App uNav and several others.


  • I often hang out on various channels (currently Telegram, and G+) and give support to users.
  • I report and comment on Launchpad bugs.

Future Work

  • I plan to start working on a Owncloud App for Ubuntu Touch soon.
  • I have a few ideas for other applications that I would like to see developed and might even port some of those.

Room for Improvement

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

  • Continue producing music, recorded with open source software.

  • Write more blog articles.
  • Learn more about OpenStack & Snappy.

I know Marius as a very friendly helpful person, running (or at least helping out with that) a bunch of German related Ubuntu communiy. As a co-author for http://ubuntufun.de and managing a Telegram group for German Ubuntu users, he's always around, helping newcomers to get started. -- mzanetti 2016-01-11 14:55:46
