Who I am

My name Leo Jackson from Scranton, Pa I live for coding, writing patches. Packaging software. I have been working on bugs, Packaging, Answers, General. I have been working with launchpad for awhile helping in answers. I also enjoy using Ubuntu as my main Desktop and Laptop OS.

My Ubuntu story

I have started to use Ubuntu since 6.04, I was not doing to much on the scene. I Decided to use it in my company LJ's Electronics and Software. Now that I have the system where I want it I can now devote some time to helping others. I will try to help with the problems I faced during my changing my company's operating systems out. I had a few different GNU/Linux OSes on our systems where we found problems so we switched to Ubuntu completely and it's running great.

  • MTecknology - I have been working with lajjr for a short while in Ubuntu-Drupal. He's offered to code the Planet module. His ambitions in working with a community impress me and his LP profile reveals some hard work.

  • JohnMazer - I have known Leo Jackson for almost 7 1/2 Years. He is the reason I use Ubuntu 9.04 now. He had also agreed to mentor me in packaging.

  • BryceHarrington - Leo has helped on bug triage for Inkscape, which has been quite welcome.
