Studying nautical Sciences at the Maritime Academy.
Started using Ubuntu Feisty and Gutsy in 2007 on a dual-boot out of curiosity. Booted m$xp and Ubuntu 50/50. From Ubuntu 8.04 Hardy on I use it as my one and only OS.
I'm interested in latest gadgets and technology, but I’m not a programmer or graphical designer at al. I like to tweak/fix my OS with the help of howto's and reading forums.
I like hiking in the outdoors. Loaded with food, a tent and sleeping bag, heading for the mountains or wild-camping in a the woods for a couple of days. Cheap vacations, at least if you don't include the fact that I'm a gear-freak always on the lookout for that one stove, tarp or spork that weights a little bit less or performs better.
I could only successfully convince one person to try and use Ubuntu on a daily basis. He is now a happy user for more than a year and even trying to convince his wife to make the same switch. I never had the privilege to meet an other person in real live that uses Ubuntu on a daily basis.
