Bert Desmet

Hello, my name is Bert Desmet. I am now 21years 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 a bit python) and scripting (PHP). I am always in for new technologies (maybe that is why I like fedora that much?).

It was running with Gnome, and I still like Gnome more than KDE, but that's something personal. when Fedora core 2 was released, I switched to Fedora, and stayed with Fedora. But I have also tested other distro's like Ubuntu, Mandriva, Slackware, ..., ...
