It was in 2009 that someone installed a Linux distribution (Ubuntu) for me because my feeble little hard drive capacity (8 GB) would accept nothing else. From that moment on I began to learn to understand it and to trace its evolution. I came across many other distributions, Debian, CentOS, Kubuntu, and Fedora, to name only a few.
In time my connection with it became stronger than just my own interest; that was when I created the Open Source club in my school; two years later I founded the Open Source Laboratory, an association for the promotion and popularizing of Libre/Open technologies.
In all my efforts and research to find solutions for problems in my environment I have been welcomed by the Emmabuntüs collective whose distribution has been adopted by my followers.
To this day our relationship has been working perfectly and I have no intention of ending it.
