Favorite season: Spring because it is a time to plant new plants into the ground and watch them grow.
Motto: We have a no stupid-questions policy. We would like you to have a no-stupid answers policy.
When did you join the openSUSE community and what made you do that?
I joined shortly after the release of openSUSE 10.3. Previously, I hadn’t really accessed any online support and trudged through my experiences on my own with the occasional advice of a friend and fellow Linux user. When 10.3 came along, I had a problem with resolution, so I signed up to the mailing list. On the first day, JP Rosevear spotted me and made me aware of the openSUSE-GNOME team.
One day, there was a GNOME meeting announcement, and I *thought* it was about introducing various features of GNOME. So I went to the meeting, which turned out to be a technical team meeting, and there JP managed to butter me into taking on a task, and I haven’t been able to break free since.
In what way do you participate in the openSUSE project?
I participate with the openSUSE-GNOME team, and recently joined up with the Marketing group.
