I saw Francois speak at Debian Day 2010, held up at Columbia University. Francois gave a great talk about supporting Linux for friends and family. When I started The Linux Setup, he was one of the first people I asked to participate.

1. Who are you, and what do you do?

I am Francois Marier (http://feeding.cloud.geek.nz), a Debian Developer since 2003, originally from Quebec (Canada) but now living in New Zealand.

In my spare time, I maintain several Debian packages, volunteer to answer licensing questions for the Free Software Foundation, and work on improving Libravatar, a project I started about a year ago.

2. What distribution do you run on your main desktop/laptop?
