Hello, My name is luke martinez (asmartgoat). I am 14 years old, I live in melbourne, Australia.

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 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?"

Vital Statistics

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 I did. she prefers going on my laptop than the other computers because "it has fedora on it!"

I am usualy very easy to reach, You can contact me on;

   * Email: l32007luke AT (preferred)

   * IRC : asmartgoat (#fedora #fedora-ambassadors)

I want to / will do in the future;

  • organize a fedora event
  • convince the IT staff to install fedora on the web kiosks.
  • get sugar for my sister
  • provide support in #fedora & #fedora-unregistered

I do at the moment;

  • introduce FOSS to school students.
  • provide support for people who have recieved the gift of FOSS from me.
  • spend tireless hours waiting for the next version of fedora to download.
