About me, myself and mine

Who am I?

Me

Me

Named by memories of a gruelsome scene from Joyce’s Ulysses I am not that gruelsome myself (some of my ex-wives may object). I like to write and talk to people, I like the community, the choice and the freedom I get from Linux.

Having been a Mandriva contractor for 8 years it was no wonder that I committed much of my time, some of my money and a piece of my heart to the community of Mandriva users in Germany. In 2003 I founded MandrivaUser.de, a steadily growing site for all German users of Mandriva Linux to meet, discuss and find support for their favouorite distribution.

Having been in touch with the Mandriva company almost since their start (as Mandrakesoft) in 1998, having witnessed all the changes, the good ones and the bad ones, I regard myself as someone who knows both side of the story – the company and the community.

From this point of view and also from the point of view of a very normal user I started this blog.

What will you find here?

You will find my thoughts about the ongoings at Mandriva, in the community, and more. You will also find stories about my personal experiences with Mandriva and Mandriva Linux.

What will you not find here?

Flames against Mandriva which are not based on facts.

What should you do?

If you like what you read, leave a comment and spread the info. If you don’t like what you read, well, that’s up to you.

Enjoy!
