Open source involvements

My activities are not only related to Ubuntu but also to the philosophy of open source software as all. Currently I am involved in several open source projects and communities supporting and promoting open source software use.

Articles

Starting with Ubuntu 7.04, I was contacted by Linux+ DVD in order to write some articles about Ubuntu. From that special issue dedicated to Ubuntu, I used to write/updates articles to be published in each special Ubuntu issue.

Here is a list of my articles :
