A little introduction about myself. I start using Linux since a kid, in 1998 I start using RedHat Linux because of eager to try new things and since then I tried so many Linux distros and finally I stick with Debian. When Ubuntu appeared, I start using Ubuntu in 2005 for desktops and workstations and still using Debian for certain server requirement.

I am very interested in embedded devices especially Linux ARM port and using these devices extensively in my works. I've shared my interest with Martin Michlmayr, current Debian ARM port maintainer and he had help me a lot with Debian on NSLU2.
