Paul Kairis, Ubuntu Arizona Local Community Team


I have known Paul since 2015 and continue to be amazed at his knowledge of Linux Operating Systems, especially Ubuntu and its officially recognized “flavors” as well as other Free and Open Source Software. He is always willing to provide assistance to anyone who asks for help either at the semi-monthly installation festivals or on the Team IRC channel. He is extremely worthy of being accepted as a Ubuntu member.
