I am a programmer, system administrator, and computer enthusiast. I switched from Windows to Linux seven years ago, and have primarily ran Ubuntu on my desktop systems, and Debian on my servers. I joined this community for support, and because helping others brings me great satisfaction. I very much respect the open source community, and consider Ask Ubuntu one of the more respectful, generous, friendly, and informative tech communities on the net.
In addition, I am a big advocate of and supporter of internet freedoms. I am dedicated to helping people reclaim their privacy, secure their computer systems and networks, and keep the internet open, with equal access and data traffic priority for all.
