I’m a 32-year IT Consultant from Belgium, and I manage to get through life without being an expert in anything. My girlfriend and I recently moved in together, to the Ardennes. In Belgium, you can’t get much closer to nature than that.
I have two sons, Axel and Liam, one from a previous marriage, one newly born in September 2009.
Everything I know about Linux is self-taught. I’m not a programmer either. That means my contributions to open source are pretty minor, but I’m proud of them anyway: I provided the Dutch translation for the lightweight Desktop Environment LXDE (go and check it out), and I did some translations for the Chakra Project (Shaman, a package installer and Tribe, a LiveCD installer).
I’m still searching for “the perfect desktop experience”, but I haven’t found it yet KDE 4 comes very close though.
My preferred operating system on my main desktop (at the moment) is Ubuntu 10.04. It was Arch Linux, before, and probably will be again…I like to change things. I also have an Asus EEE900 with Lubuntu. The third one is a file- and print server and runs a LXDE and Ubuntu hybrid. It was just the easiest way to set up.
I think tinkering in front of my PC is the most fun I can have by myself, but I’m weird that way.
