About me

I'm a 20-year-old student from Hungary. I'm spending my second year at the Technical University of Budapest (nowadays called Budapest University of Technology and Economics). I installed my first Linux distro (Debian) about 6 years ago. Then I used SuSE, Mandrake and Red Hat before sticking to Debian again (suited the most for me). Since Hoary do I use Ubuntu, and I'm very satisfied with it so far (that's why I decided to contribute in some way: I began with translating into Hungarian - GaborKelemen: thanks for your support). In the future I'd like to contribute more: packaging, testing, and some community related stuff.
