What is your name/username?
How old are you?

I am married.
How about Kids, Grandkids (names and ages)?
We have no kids. We don't want kids, because we want to be free together.

We have a cat.
Are you retired, still working and if working, what do you do?
Now I am not working because I changed cities some months ago and I sold the old house and bought my new home in another region in Italy. I think I'm going to start working as a computer technician again soon.
Where do you call home? What is it like? IE: weather, scenery
I live in Santa Marinella near Rome.
Where did you go to school and what is your education level?
I have a diploma of commercial technical institute.
What kind of things you like doing? hobbies, travel, fishing, camping?
Computers, music, and the sea.
Why and when did you start using Linux?
Without knowing Linux, I was attracted to it in early 2000. I had a Mandrake Linux cd installer, but my 20 gb hard disk with Win98 wouldn't allow me to add anything else. Then I did live experiments with Slax in 2006 and I really liked it. When I bought a new hard disk, I finally managed to install my first Linux distro: Ubuntu. After that, I met PCLinuxOS and I happily passed here because it had all the requirements that I was looking for.
What specific equipment do currently use with PCLOS?
My PC desktop and my wife's notebook.
Do you feel that your use of Linux influences the reactions you receive from your computer peers or family? If so, how?
It is a great satisfaction to use Linux and it is an honor to have more devices with it installed almost everywhere.
What would you like to see happen within PCLOS that would make it a better place. What are your feelings?
I think it's perfect this way.
Other changes could make the community grow, but they could make it worse.
Better the good quality.
