I have the great pleasure to welcome another geeko from my homeland
Mauritius who recently joined openSUSE Advocate team. As the tradition
asks for it, I shot a him a few questions that help in describing his
Linux ambition (: Below are his answers.
Welcome to the team, Avinash ... Have a lot of fun with openSUSE (:

> Hello, my name is Avinash Mayaram. I am a PHP developer. I will soon start my second year at MCCI BTS SIO, a college IT diploma. I would like to work as a full-time PHP developer in a LAMP environment (Linux Apache MySQL PHP).
> How you started with Linux & FOSS?
> I was in a college in France some years ago, where all the computers were on Linux. We had to use chmod as the first step after logging into our student account.
> How you came to know about the openSUSE Project?
> I discovered the openSUSE project when I went to a Linux User Group of Mauritius meetup. I was looking for a replacement for Ubuntu 12.04 LTS.
> Do you use openSUSE at home/work?
> Yes openSUSE 12.3 x86 64 KDE is the only system on my laptop now. I didn't have to install a driver for my network card, it was already in the system. (I have ralink 3290)
> What was your first impression about the openSUSE community?
> I like the idea that I can help to build the operating system I use daily.
> How do you want to contribute to the project?
> I like to answer questions in forums. I will develop useful scripts and post them in a blog. And present openSUSE to all my friends. And get people to install openSUSE on their computer. Also I will take Linux exams, because I'm still a beginner. This takes time but I have already begun.
