Cry Freedom

My Name is Dr. Gordon Dunlop and I am an academic, scientist and a Unix/Linux user. My Ph.D. is in Environmental Physiology/Genetics with my thesis being entitled "Linking Germination Traits of Oilseed Rape (Brassica napus L.) to DNA Markers". I also have a Msc. Information Technology degree where my master's dissertation was entitled "Evaluating the Performance and Potential of Para- and Paene- Virtualisation Technologies in a Linux Beowulf Cluster".

I have been a Unix/Linux user for many years, still learning and trying to put back into the community at large. I use Fedora through personal choice as I believe it is the cutting edge of Linux distributions and I feel comfortable with it.
