++++Pyae Sone++++

=Hello...= I am Pyae Sone from Myanmar. My nick is Gipsy(ဂ်စ္ပဆီ). In 2008, Ko Ko Ye Introduced me the Ubuntu. After seeing the effects, i like Ubuntu. So I became Ubuntu user.

==About Me== Now, I am working at One of the Internet Cafe(Tha Pyay San Internet Cafe). My hometown is Namtu(North Shan State). Now i am living @Yangon. I want to live my life as simplest. I was born in Namtu Township. After I had finished my primary school, we moved from that town to Yangon. I started learning computer from some non-organization at grade 10. That is computer basic course. After my matriculation exam, I attended again in some basic courses. After that course, I am using computer in National Resource Centre (MM). In 2008, I had met a forum named MYSTERYZILLION. I found many friends in there both online and offline. At that time, I met with Ko Ko Ye. He introduce me What is Ubuntu, Opensource, etc... So, I try to study Ubuntu from 2008. When I started working in an internet cafe, I want to contribute Ubuntu Community. So I started again to translate Ubuntu into our language Myanmar. At that time , localization percentage is only 3 percent finished . Now finished localization percentage is near 15 %. Most Ubuntu UI is with our language.
