When did you first start using Linux and why?

In 2000, first only at work, later at home.

How long have you been using the SMGL distribution?

For 2 months, starting in 0.8.

What piqued your interest in SMGL initially?

The fact it's source base, great tools, GPL'ed and has a great community.

What future do you personally see for SMGL?

More popular among experienced users.

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

Physics for 3 years at Unicamp and Computer Science at UFRJ.
Working as information system developer.

Any personal messages for the Source Mage users out there?

Make the distro you use better : contribute and tell your friends about it.


vi or emacs?

Vim : I use it for writing email, programmming, etc : whenever I can.


Neither. I prefer light-weight ones, like XFCE (the one I use), fluxbox, waimea and kahakai.



Strictly personal

Do you have any family?

Yes, parents, brothers/sisters, two dogs (at parents home) and wife.

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

I don't have a car. It requires too much attention '$'.
I'm gonna buy a motorcycle, it's simpler to maintain, cheaper and don't get stuck at traffic jams.

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

OK, later :-)
