I'm an Austrian sysadmin living in Montpezat (South France), and a 100% 
GNU/Linux user since 2001. I've started with Slackware (7.1, I think) on 
  a battered 486, hopped distros for some time, used Mandriva, Debian 
and then Slackware again for a few years. In the last two years or so, 
I've been mainly using a mix of CentOS (a Red Hat Enterprise Linux 
clone) and Fedora.

I've been working as a writer for the french magazine "Linux Pratique" 
since 2004. For the last two years, my job consisted primarily in 
networking a series of small public libraries in eleven small towns 
around here, using 100% open source software.

I don't know why, but it looks like I never crossed paths with FreeBSD. 
Only recently, I took a peek in the apparently well-written 
documentation. Now I have some spare time and also a spare machine (a 
Fujitsu Lifebook), and I thought I'd give FreeBSD a spin, just out of 
mere curiosity.

Cheers from the sunny South of France,

Niki Kovacs
