Open Source project(s) I'm involved with or passionate about: 
I'm currently not involved in any Open Source projects, although I eventually want to. Right now my boys take up a lot of my free time.

I've had an on-again-off-again relationship with Linux for the past 20 years. It all started with buying a book on Slackware Linux that included an install CD. I would work with it for a while, and then something would stop working. After troubleshooting for a little while, I would get frustrated and switch back to Windows. A few years later I moved on Red Hat Linux, and it seemed much more user friendly, but I still ran into some issues that I couldn't seem to solve. I'd go back and try it again with each new release, but always ran into issues. I've been running Ubuntu Linux on my laptop now for the past 6 years, and absolutely love it! 2 years ago, I installed Mythbuntu on the machine running my TV, and have not looked back. I am now proud to say that all of the computers in my house run Linux!
