This need to work !
I has fallen in computers in 1991, started with Dos,Windows, NT etc. I really enjoy development & testing, and also as system administrator too. (this thing needs to work !)
From the last 12 years, I've been using opensource software and more intensively (exclusively) openSUSE from 2004.
If you don't find me often on IRC, it's just because I'm a shadow's worker, in the front battle, the mud ...
to have my customer's running openSUSE server instead of concurrency operating software. (You know those coming from Redmond, or South-Africa :-))
