Activities within Fedora
- My first contact with Linux was a an ill fated try to compile the newly announced Linux-kernel on my Minix system. It could not get it compiled, so I dumped it. Some months later, after finding the SLS, I installed my first Linux system and has been a constant user since. I used SLS, Slackware, SuSE and DLD. Finally I switched to Redhat 4.x as Redhat was the only distro shipping the required libs for running an SMP enabled kernel. I stayed with Redhat since then.
- We use various members of the Redhat family in our company.
- I worked as an instructor for Redhat system administration for some years and published a number of articles and books on operating-systems including Linux.
- I attended Cebit 2006 for CaCert and Cebit 2008 for KDE / Fedora
- I attended the Fedora Ambassador Day and LinuxTag 2007 & 2008 in Berlin. Most time I was occupied by explaining the OLPC to visitors.
