Please welcome E-1 / Hidzuan to our team. Below are the set of questions he responded to
I'm Hidzuan. But people call me "e1" . ;-)
As introduction. I'm a IT Freelancer since 2005. I was a System Administrator for the 3D Animation (Long Format). But that company got a financial problem so they shutdown the operation on 13th May 2005. Since that day, I become a IT Freelancer to serve all the company that need a a solution especially open source solution.
Beside that, I'm also a part-time tutor and Subject Matter Expert (SME) for several subject like Network Management and several Open Source subject such as Open Source Licensing and Legal Issues Introduction to Open Source.
What have you done already for openSUSE?
Actually, I have done a several things for me and the solution based on the openSuSE. In the middile of this years, I was working with one of the secondary teacher to use OpenSuSE LiFe Education for their lab. The best thing about what we have done was, this lab occupied by a special student which has a problem in learning like normal student. By using the OpenSuSe it's seem that some of them can perform very well for every games in the distro.
Currently, I'm working with one of the government agency in ministry of education to contribute a good how-to in Bahasa Malaysia (my national language for Malaysian), this project still on progress. We are working to prepare a good material that we can use for others Malaysian as well. I hope we can officially upload in the wiki after we finish some chapters.
What are your plans for promoting openSUSE? Please tell us what you want to do the next 6 months.
I'm a IT Freelancer. So as we knew already, as IT Freelancer I don't have any base to show the capability on what openSuSe can provide to world.. ;-). But, by next month, I got a permission to use some space at my cousin shop. And the best thing that was computer shop, so to become an ambassador is the right path to me to get official merchandise from you all to promote more on OpenSuSE. After all, I can assist to any public to try the future OS on today PC plus my cousin shop can become a mini hub of solution based on openSuSE.
Are you ready to start promoting openSUSE?
Yes, I am.
What do you think is the best kept secret of openSUSE?
ActuallyI don’t quite understand the question, but I could say that I like openSUSE because of The powerful and supremcacy. For me, Desktops must be easy and have more funcionalities without forget the stability and performance.
Why do you love to do this?
I believe in free solution will make a better place for today world and I believe also the future of proprietary solution will be extinct soon, and I want make part from this history... ;-)
How did you start with with Linux/openSUSE? What is your level of experience?
I started with Mandrake and Fedora 3 at training centre. Then I found that openSuSe 9.3 was much better for me. I started using since 2004 on a spare computer as my workstation at my offfice. After that, I change my OS from Fedora to OpenSuSE for my home computer. Then I start to influeced my family member to use Linux to replace the Windows.. oppss..I tried several distros, like many new Linux users but still
I found that openSuSe still my favourite until today. I still stick on the power of geeko.
I've done a some coaching on openSuSe for a student to use a parallel solution to compute something to use in engineering. As a freelance, I;m also attach to any governemnt and private agency to use openSuse for the solution. For me, Linux has meant a lot of learning to utilize a free solution to become a priceless solution for better world for us.
Best regards Hidzuan.
