Luc de Louw

Hi! My name is Luc de Louw, a Swiss guy living in Berlin, Germany. I'm a Linux enthusiast since 1994. Since more then 10 years, Linux is also my profession. In the year 2000 I installed the first commercially used Linux systems of the Swiss airline industry. Since then I worked in different companies mostly in the outsourcing business, and now at Red Hat as a Linux Consultant.

Since approx. four years I'm working with Red Hat's RHEL and its derivatives such as CentOS. Later I also switched my Desktop and Notebooks from openSUSE to Fedora, for obvious reasons: Fedora is the upstream of RHEL and it is more stable.

My first contact with the Fedora community was at 2010 in Zürich, Switzerland. There I recognized that it is indeed a very nice and international community with a lot of interesting people.
