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

 * 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. [[ 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. Tololy -
