 * 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 -

 * Well, I know Jad from JoLUG, as an active core member, he used to take initiatives in different JoLUG activities, when he decided to start the Ubuntu LoCo, it was my pleasure to join that group, not only for the sake of Ubuntu and that I love it, but also to enjoy working with such an inspiring person, his leadership skills is very high, a self-motivated person and a highly skilled Open Source advocate, it is an honor to work with Jad and it is always a joy to meet and discuss things with.
