Software developer and tester in Unix / Linux since 1985

Installed my first Linux in 1996, Red Hat 5 if I remember correctly.

Gave up on Red Hat when Gnome Shell came and  I found Mint and hope that I can help Mint get even better.

Work as consultant in Unix and Linux. Testing, development and security.
