I plan to keep on propagating the use of Ubuntu among all that want to enjoy the benefits of Linux. For me, Ubuntu is an example of how the power of open source software can go beyond of what is expected, and show that open source software can reach many types of users and benefit them in so many ways all and in the many different levels, being this end users, the middle man, corporate or developers.
Luis Alvarado has been an active member of the local and international community. Assists on the local LUG forums, promoting and supporting Ubuntu Linux. Also participates in the local events like FLISOL which is the Latin America Free Software Installation Festival, it is held simultaneously in every country in LA and he installs Ubuntu. Besides that he is a good team player in OSS developer meetings and projects. -Miguel Alvarado (aka Exodus)
