Interviews

Hi Samuel, welcome by Mageia italian users. First of all, could you please start by introducing yourself?

Hello. I’m Samuel Verschelde, 29 year-old, living in Lyon (France).

How did you first become interested in Linux?

I discovered linux during my studies, in 2003. It was exciting to discover a whole new world I didn’t know, having only used computers with Microsoft systems on them for many years. The first distribution I installed was Debian potatoe, and it probably wasn’t the best choice for a beginner not familiar with unix command line Smile

Then I used Red Hat for some time and finally settled to Mandrake in 2004.

How did you discover Mageia and why did you decide to join the project?

Rest here

The software itself is built to provide useful information and educational content, with or without an Internet connection. Read more
