I'm currently an Ubuntu Java Maintainer working for Canonical.
I have used Linux since 1997, initially trying Slackware until I got burned. Dialing down from advanced level to beginner I then moved to Conectiva, and after a learning period I was able to move around other distros, like Debian, SuSe, and even back to Slackware. Since then I moved around Debian (and derivatives, including Ubuntu), Gentoo, RHEL, to finally stick for a few years with Archlinux. Meanwhile that I got introduced to tiling window managers, which I only left aside for the few moments I *had* to run something that was not properly supported at the time - how glad I'm that nowadays everything just works®!
Now working on Canonical (yay!) I'm back to Ubuntu (but still sticking to i3).
