An UBUNTU/EDUBUNTU/KUBUNTU advocate from Zamboanga City, Philippines
I am an on and off linux user since 1999. Started using Slackware then Redhat (using lang kasi asawa ko ang nag install) then Ubuntu and Kubuntu recently. I had been beaten by the FOSS bug during the Linux World Seminar in Manila. I would like to see Edubuntu take off in the Education Sector. (Note: I am into Edubuntu now... got loads of stuff to play around)
I am proud of the fact that there are Filipinos under the documentation and development team of this project... Inspiring isn't it?!.
I had read and been inspired by the story and principles of Mr. Mark Shuttleworth
I am planning to hold a FOSS Seminar here in far far Zamboanga sometime in March. My way of sharing the FOSS ideology to the people of Zamboanga.
I also would like to start a LoCo chapter here...maybe sometime early next year too.
