Hello, My name is luke martinez (asmartgoat). I am 14 years old, I live in melbourne, Australia.
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 do i miss: everything going [OK] when its booting up except for cups (common unix printing system) which always used to give back the [failed] responce. :P (i know you can bring up interactive boot, I just miss black / grey / green / red)
What i do now?
Nowadays i market linux & FOSS to my colleges and mates at school, I have made the school switch from ie 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?"
I have made: 2 people switch to fully open source software Josh Carter & <name withheld>.
As well as my younger sister who has the opertunity to experience FOSS at the same age as me. she prefers going on my laptop than the other computers because "it has fedora on it!"
I should put sugar on a stick, i'll buy her a usb and put sugar on it, or buy a sugar usb
