GNU/Linux History


  • I have know Mario for quite a few months now. Ever since he started participating in LoCo teams in latin america, he has always had a very positive and energetic approach to all the new Spanish LoCo team projects (Documentation / Community), He gives the growing ubuntu-pa (Panama team) the soulful touch every LoCo team should have and he has brought in a new sense of unity between the spanish-speaking loCo teams. - EfrainValles ubuntu-ve
