  9. I am a develper coding mainly in c/c++, of course I can do scripting too. I tend to spend my time studying Operating Systems, namely, the Linux Kernel. I have a few trivial patches in the kernel already, with a couple more in Andrew Morton's tree waiting for the merge window. Recently I made some documentation updates/changes to one of the kbuild docs and am currently waiting for feedback.

I am an open source enthusiast and would love to contribute to more projects. Fedora is one of the distributions I use, and is currently the distribution I install on all of my non-technical friends systems to get them to switch to open source.
