When did you first start using Linux and why?

Back in 1999, mostly cause I was curious.

How long have you been using the SMGL distribution?

Um.. well, for 6 months now I guess. Not long :-)

What piqued your interest in SMGL initially?

The name, the fact that it was source based and a cool way of doing stuff in it.

What future do you personally see for SMGL?

That's a hard one. If we get more people that'll do maintainance work we could grow very fast to a more popular distro.

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

Well, I am working at a computer hardware/software retail store as a salesman. I've been studying english and IT to be a professor, but haven't the time/will lately due to my work hours which can be unpredictable. My skills? heh.. well, besides general system maintainance, I do some coding in php and python. That's about it.

Any personal messages for the Source Mage users out there?

Yeah, tell everyone you know about how cool smgl is :-)

What other OS programs/software have you worked on?

Well, I've coded some stuff here and there, and have a sf.net project called amaroc. It's a ncurses frontend for amarok to ease control over network.


vi or emacs?

Hm.. nano? :-D


If I have to choose, it'd be KDE.


GPL. Definitely. No m$ will ever include my code into their crappy OS and make money out of it.

Strictly personal

Do you have any family?

Well, besides my mother and my grandmother, no.

What other hobbies?

I like visiting new places, camping and such. Just like to get on a train and stop anywhere I haven't been.

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

I don't drive, altho I have a dream car. Opel Kadett C. Old but beautiful.

Please attach a recent photograph of yourself – if you're brave enough ;=)

Will do it some time later ;-)
