Hello, my name is Bert Desmet. I am now 20years old, and I'm still going to school. I live in Belgium, Kruishoutem, near Ghent. I follow lessons at the Kaho Sint-Lievens high school. Currently I'm doing second bachelor Electronics-IT. My hobbies are: listening to music (rock and electro), going to some parties, having fun with my friends. And I like programming (Java, C#, C++, C) and scripting (PHP). I am always in for new technologies (maybe that is why I like fedora that much?).

About 7 years ago I started with Linux, when my older cousin installed Debian on an old pc. I was 13 or 14 years old, and had never heard of Linux before, but I liked it like euh, immediately.

But I have also tested other distro's like Ubuntu, Mandriva, Slackware, ..., ...

Bert Desmet

Hello, my name is Bert Desmet, I am 22years old and I live in Belgium, Kruishoutem, near Ghent.

My first encounter with Linux (red hat) was when I was 14years old. My nephew installed Red Hat on our old family computer, and I used it for surfing and chatting. I only really started with Linux recently, when I started college. I knew what was out there, and seeing that (almost) only Windows is used at my college got me going. I knew there were alternatives, and I followed the IT courses. So I wanted to prove to my professors that Linux is a valid alternative.

I started in the community in January 2009, and I haven't got a moment of regret yet. I help out where I can, but my primary role is being an Ambassador, and being the spins wrangler for the fedora spins SIG. I am also always available to assist with Fedora problems.
