A Bit About Me

A Brief introduction

I've been introduced to GNU+Linux OS by a friend on 2005 while studying in a local university. It was Mandriva. Then when I heard about Ubuntu and how I can get it for free, including updates and support forum, I instantly fell in love with it.

I started to adopt Ubuntu and Debian (desktop and laptop) as main OS since 2007. I remembered the day when I'm trying to figure out how to install mp3 player on my Ubuntu 5.04 desktop. Back then I had no internet connection so I had to walk 4 kilo meters to cyber cafe to download and meet package dependency until I finally be able to use XMMS to play my mp3 collections. It was a bittersweet memory I could never forget.

I'm currently working in a company that promotes FOSS products such as Smoothwall, OS-SIM and many more.
