Chris has been passionate about computers since the early 80s and working (Let’s be real … playing video games!) on a Commadore 64. He was introduced to IBM AIX UNIX and Dassault CATIA in high school in the early 90s. He was introduced to Linux in 1995. Over the next few years Linux and free and open source software slowly intruded on his personal and corporate computing life. Now he participates in several FOSS communities and torments friends and family and coworkers about the virtues of FOSS in daily computing.
