I am a programmer and open source software enthusiast from West Tennessee. Before 2007, I knew very little about open source software. I tinkered around with freeware and shareware, but always on Windows. Since reading about Ubuntu Linux in a PCWorld article, I have learned how to use open source software such as The GIMP, Inkscape, and Blender; how to program in Python; and how to design websites with WordPress. I have become active in the Ubuntu community, answering questions on Ubuntu Forums, reporting bugs on Launchpad, and testing pre-release versions of Ubuntu.

I am a developer for Keryx, a free/open source software project intended to help Ubuntu users with slow or no Internet connection install software.

comment “The following packages have been kept back:” Why and how do I solve it?
Cas, should I just add that it could be dangerous to run a dist-upgrade on a stable system? Why exactly is that dangerous? (I honestly don't know apt all that well.)
