Hello, My name is luke martinez (asmartgoat).
 
I am 15 years old, I live in Melbourne, Australia.
 
I was born on the Third of November 1995.
 
 
 
== Growing up ==
 
 
I am very lucky to have been using linux while growing up since my father was a developer. I have to credit him with introducing me to Free and Open Source software at a very young age, (younger than I can remember).
 
 
I used to always save up for a linux magazine to get the latest distrubution onto my pentium III 450mhz noisy-box. RHL*, mandrake/mandriva. you name it, i've had it.
 
 
 
 
 
== What i do now? ==
 
 
Nowadays i market linux & FOSS to my colleges and mates at school, I have made the school switch from Internet Explorer to an ie / firefox choice (which it's pretty obvious that everybody chooses firefox! :) )
 
 
I used to provide support to countless individuals on ubuntu with questions such as "how do i install the nvidia driver?" and "how do I switch to kde?"
