LXer How did you get involved with Linux, and Ubuntu in particular?
Fabio: I have a typical experimenting approach towards anything is new, and when Linux came out I was extremely curious. Then, about 4 years ago, I was tired about Windows capabilities because I felt it was choking any free experimenting activity, so I gave Linux a try…. and I fallen in love! I have developed several web-based applications. I believe that, in a large company, everybody should prefer using web- based application (where it's possible) so that they are not bound to operating systems, machine capabilities, different behaviors, and so on. Just use a browser, access the company's application with secure login, and everybody will have the same interface and behavior, on windows, Linux, mac, and so on. Further on, Open Source, GPL, FSF, all gave me a strong motivation.
