Please introduce yourself!

I was born in Emden at 18 June 1969. After leaving the school in 1990, I join the German Navy. Since 1994 I live in Nordholz near Bremerhaven with my wife and my two children (both girls).

When and why did you start using openSUSE/SUSE Linux?

Round about the year 2000, I bought a PC-Magazin with SuSE 6.4, installed it and used it for some time. Since SuSE 7.3, Linux replaced Windows on my PC, because I was able to configure my system on my own without a mouse. Wink

When did you join the openSUSE community and what made you do that?

In the year 2004 I joined the PackMan-Team. At this time I was looking for x86_64 RPMs. When I realized that there was nothing available, I rebuilt the PackMan-RPMs for x86_64.
