Favorite season: No preference.
Motto: Have a lot of fun… (at least that’s what /etc/motd tells me)

Please introduce yourself!
I’m 21 years old, British, and a student studying Computer Science at the University of Warwick. I’ve just completed a work placement year doing software development.

Tell us about the background to your computer use.
Usual story: I’ve been using computers for most of my life.

When and why did you start using openSUSE/SUSE Linux?
I’ve been using SUSE Linux since 7.0 (benjiweber.co.uk/screenshots/suse/suse7/ for those interested in how it was back then). I got a boxed set and installed it after reading about Linux in magazines. I was impressed at how easy it was compared to windows and havn’t really looked back.

When did you join the openSUSE community and what made you do that?
I discovered the #suse irc channel on irc.freenode.net about 3 years ago, met other community members and gradually became more involved as I learnt more and so could help more.
