Hello, I am Keimpe de Jong, mostly known online as UndiFineD I have a collection of girls, my GF and 4 daughters.

My ICT knowledge spans over many years. My first time online was in 1988. My first encounter with Linux was in august 1995 at a hardware sale there was this guy selling Infomagic Slackware Linux 4cd's for a cheap price I just went there to buy some new antivirus (TBAV) and went home with kernel 1.0.28 I installed it on windows95 launchday.


I am a skilled PHP developer, this I thought myself. In school I had some c(++) training, but never really liked the language. I wish to learn python and conquer the world with it.


I use Linux because it is fun, kicking it's tail and then make it all better again.


I use apt-mirror to share and save bandwidth. Integrating packages in one single mirror has the advantage that you'll know it will be there. my mirror is also available online, and I would not mind if people grabbed some packages.


Since I use Linux I have converted my GF to it as well, she was a windows gamer at first but now she is hooked to how it all simply works. She now has joined me to be more actively involved, here is her profile

Why using Ubuntu?

I have worked with many different distributions in the past, at first Slackware of course, but you had to do everything manually by editing some configuration file. Since I was in school at that time I noticed that windows had become a requirement and that I had to learn about Novell netware networks. So my Pentium66 desktop migrated to windows and my 486DX100 server migrated to Novell. From 2001 I switched back to using Linux full time at home and at work. I Have played with early and late Redhat, SuSE, Fedora, CentOS, Fermi, LFS, Debian But I wanted something easier at home. Yes Ubuntu is easy. By now, our family has 6 machines, of which four are only running ubuntu.


I have been into computers since 1988. after college CS I did mostly programming in PHP. I started working for a television studio to program a call monitor. After that I started working for the European Patent Office as a Data Center manager and I have been trained in Data Center Design. Then I went to Petten to work for the European Commision as a Local Linux/Solaris Systems Administrator And after that I moved back to Friesland to work for JC-Electronics as a IT-Manager / PHP programmer to make a full company administrative system.

Life Goals

My own bug #1 is solved, I found a job as a php programmer Smile :) In my spare time I work on the projects listed below. And slowly spend time to learn Python. In the future I would love to setup a business around Linux. Especially for government and schools.


Ubuntu, Darklooks + Ambiance borders + Crystal SVG icons + redglass pointer

Ubuntu Beginners Team Membership

I became an Ubuntu Beginners Team member on 2011-01-12. I would like to thank everyone involved, and especially pedro3005, phillw, Mohi, JackyAlcine, udienz and the Council and ofcourse hajour for her support.

Keimpe has been a great companion on a project that've been working on together, and the advice and guidance he's given has done more than helped me; it allowed me to learn and give back the Ubuntu way. THAT, I'm thankful for.

As my mentee, UndiFineD showed great qualification, unending stamina and an incredible tenacity within the projects he has dedicated himself to, the Speech Control being an example. I have no doubt in claiming that he will be a priceless contribution to the Ubuntu Beginners Team and to all the teams he joins.

Undefined across the various teams I see him on is always helpful and with his knowledge and patience I have no hesitation in recommending him for membership of both UBT and full Ubuntu Membership. His work on bringing in re-energising the LoCo is wonderful.

I dont wanna flood the whole page by listing all his activities here. He really does a great work in both helping, testing and development. I am watching all his projects and his involvement. I do endorse his application for both UBT membership as well as Ubuntu membership and for anything he applies in the future.(Now you owe me a cookie Wink ;) )

Ubuntu Membership

UndiFineD showed up unexpectedly during the Dutch Translation sprint for Maverick where he translated both Orca and the complex financial part of gcalctool in just two days. It was a welcome surprise that he was there to help, certainly gcalctool would not have been translated without him. He continues to be active for the Dutch Translation Team, attending meetings and submitting suggestions for many packages.

UndiFineD has shown a tremendous amount of energy in helping to guide prospective members to the Ubuntu Beginners team. UndiFineD also has an energy and passion that is directed at issues concerning accessibility in FOSS and Ubuntu. His work on the Dutch team and with translations is outstanding as well. I believe that Keimpe will be an excellent representative of the Ubuntu community for years to come and strongly support his bid for Ubuntu Membership. -- cprofitt 2011-03-18 19:13:31

Keimpe has been a positive force in all the projects I have seen him in, he has been helping on a number of Accessibility projects and his work with new users to Ubuntu is great. I think he should be a Member. -- alanbell 2011-04-04 16:18:46

I have had the pleasure of working with UndiFineD in both Lubuntu and the BeginnersTeam. His efforts in both have been great, always around on IRC to help and always willing to pitch in with documentation. Keimpe is always warm and kind to new members and is an asset to any team he chooses to participate in (I hear his work in the Dutch LoCo is outstanding as well). I wholeheartedly support his application to be a Ubuntu Member. -- jarednorris 2024-05-23 01:03:28

Keimpe has shown a tremendous desire and ability to help with Ubuntu. His dedication to the Beginners Team is noteworthy. A powerful desire to insure that all individuals regardless of disability has driven him to help with Accessibility as much as possible. His answers on IRC are always courteous and to the point. He takes time to explain as much as needed when necessary to the newcomer. His application for Ubuntu Membership should be approved as soon as possible. -- charlie-tca 2011-04-05 01:49:52

I have mostly worked with Keimpe on the Accessibility Team where he has shown his worth this cycle. He is committed to Ubuntu and open source for all people. He is always willing to jump in to help others and is courteous in how he does so. I'm quite please he's applying for membership and support his application. -- pendulum 2011-04-05 11:12:50

Keimpe is really doing a great work for the community in Ubuntu Beginners Team as well as Lubuntu project. His contributions are countless and the knowledge he has is highly remarkable. I fully support his application for Ubuntu Membership. --Mohi 2011-04-05

UndiFineD has been great to work with. He has been very helpful to keep our meetings going and staying organized in our efforts on the Ubuntu-Adverts project. We've been slowly progressing with this new team and Undi has been a key part of our efforts so far. Thanks UndiFineD! -- mattgriffin 2011-04-05
