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. Smile

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.

Advocacy group: ‘ICT procurement is broken’

Public administrations in the EU are hindering competition by asking for specific brands and products when procuring software solutions, says OpenForum Europe, an organisation campaigning for an open, competitive ICT market. “No progress has been made in recent years. In fact the practice of referring to brand names in public procurement has become more widespread”, OFE says. Read more

7-Way Linux Graphics Card Comparison With Civilization Beyond Earth

The performance of Civilization: Beyond Earth on Linux is quite demanding. The OpenBenchmarking.org test profile of Civilization Beyond Earth uses roughly the high image quality settings and for this article the tests were done at 1920 x 1080. As the results are about to show, even with modern graphics cards, it's quite a chore putting out a decent frame-rate at 1080p for this strategy game. Read more
