Role in SMGL: I just help a little
Location/Country: Nancy / France
When did you first start using Linux and why?
I think I started using Linux in october 2003, by a heavy day :-D. I don't know why did I start using Linux, maybe because "Blue" is not my favourite color and too many blue screens – it's not good for health. The first time was with Mandrake 9.0 on the laboratory of my high school. And the first thing I loved in a Linux System was this. After this I discovered all the Free Software and Open Source Movement. And I just love it for its ideas. Today it's my first passion.
How long have you been using the SMGL distribution?
I use Source Mage since July 2004 … and it changed my "Computing" life. I met Unet in Febuary 2004 during a training course (I don't know if it's the good word) with the Eole Team. In July I went back to Eole Project for my first computing job. I was looking for a good distribution to get more experience with Linux. Unet introduced myself to Source Mage and I simply fall in love with this distribution. After this I worked 15 days to get a clean system on my computer, and since these days I continue with Source Mage on my main computer.
What piqued your interest in SMGL initially?
I think it's community. On the first days a lot of people on IRC channels helped me. After that it's the Source Compiling concept and the last – all the things you can learn on installing SMGL.
What future do you personally see for SMGL?
I don't know, but for me, many years of contribution and promotion of SMGL.
Tell us a little bit about yourself. Education/Career/Skills?
Ho you ask me a lot … When I was a child I saw a black screen with green letters on a TV show since this day I'm bewitched by computing.
I started my Education by "accountancy", very fast I moved to computing studies. Last Year I had my degree and I work for a Computing company since 2005.
Any personal messages for the Source Mage users out there?
Use Use and Use more !!! Call all your friends and USE Source Mage GNU/Linux !! That's a great experience.
What other OS programs/software have you worked on?
I work with these OS:
I worked on:
I work for:
vi or emacs?
Definitely VIM. I don't need an other Operation system, an editor is enough.
KDE or GNOME?
Enlightenment DR17, what else ?
BSD or GPL?
GPL, I think free software have to stay Free.
Do you have any family?
Yes I have a very big family,
What other hobbies?
First, I love Computing, Administration, Coding and a lot of things around Computing.
After this, sometimes, I make some http://picasaweb.google.com/caseiro.philippe.
I have Exotic Birds.
I paint miniatures of wargames.
I read a lot of fantasy and SF and other books.
I love travelling and go back to my country (Portugal).
I love culture, politics, science, ecology, I'm very interested by this world.
What kind of car do you drive? Or what is your dream car?
I drive a Seat Leon. I don't dream of cars, it's not very important for me but If I had to choose one … I think the Shelby GT500 is a good choice. I love old american Cars.
Please attach a recent photograph of yourself – if you're brave enough ;=)
Brave … brave … no I'm not
