When did you first start using Linux and why?

June 2003, I was looking forward using and learning something else than win. Since this time, I've never used it again at home.

How long have you been using the SMGL distribution?

First installation in December 2003, but I've switch to try several distro. I'm using it definitively since April 2004.

What piqued your interest in SMGL initially?

A source based distro and a very helpful team.

What future do you personally see for SMGL?

I would like to see it growing more and more…

Tell us a little bit about yourself. Education/Career/Skills?

I just end a 2 years formation in a mechanical institute, now I begin a special year in computer science.


vi or emacs?



I use fluxbox which is a small wm that incite me to have a better knowledge of the system. If I was using big nice wm, I wouldn't try to know what's behind. I just use some gtk+(2) applications, but no gnome or kde programs.



Strictly personal

What kind of car do you drive? Or what is your dream car?

A good old (16 years) honda civic that I get for $300, and which suck about 16 liters/60 miles.
No dream car, since it can transport me from a point A to B without breaking down.
