= About Me =

A 28 years old Middle Eastern Linux extremist with a B.A in political science and law. I’m addicted to programming by decision so I’m not looking for a rehab. I do [[http://syntux.net/blog blog]] and [[http://flickr.com/photos/jad Photograph]] and in my free time, I’m just a human.
Started using Ubuntu since the release of Warty Warthog, Ubuntu solved many of my problems so I'm devoting time to contribute to the community

 * Syntux has been active on the loco-contact list, he contributed some good points/things. We had some good chats at irc about running a locoteam JuliusBloch

 * Jad has helped the Ubuntu Loco Team to organize and present a open source awareness lecture at Jordan University, and Princess Sumaya University for Technology. He also helped in getting permission for, and giving the Ubuntu desktop course. [[https://launchpad.net/~faisal-dajani Al-Faisal Al-Dajani]]
 * Jad is currently undergoing negotiations with the Royal Scientific Society in Jordan, to establish a National Open Source office, that helps in spreading awareness and providing information for the government, public sector, universities, and the general public. [[https://launchpad.net/~faisal-dajani Al-Faisal Al-Dajani]]


* I am deeply grateful for Jad for helping me out when I switched to Ubuntu a few months ago. I didn't know much about it and he taught me a lot. He also dedicated his time to solve my problems and answer any questions I had. I am indebted for him due to his kindness and selflessness and willingness to help a complete amateur just because he believed in the principles behind the Ubuntu Linux philosophy.
