About Me

My foray into Linux started a few years before Ubuntu. I was given a copy of SuSE, and spent as much time as I could in this operating system that I knew nothing about. Fast forward a few years and I had gotten involved with the Shuttleworth Foundation, putting thin-client networks into schools in disadvantaged areas around Cape Town. I suddenly was in contact with a whole lot of other Linux users, and I was overjoyed.

Toward the end of this time I heard about Ubuntu, and I eagerly installed it on my laptop. By Ubuntu 6.06, I had installed Ubuntu (or its sister, Kubuntu) on every computer I had.

When the South African Ubuntu LoCo started up, I got wind of this, and I've been a part of it ever since.

Future Goals

With my open-source project, and my family, my time is limited. Having said that, my future goals are to continue contributing to Ubuntu and Ubuntu-ZA the way I have been doing for the last 5-10 years (through IRC, mailing lists and open source projects), and to help grow the Ubuntu-ZA community.
