""In 2004, six months after suddenly losing my father, I became
a single dad. I was forced to give up my travelling position as an
application specialist for a large ERP software manufacturer."
"Aaron Nursoo first became interested in open source software
because it was free. He saw in it an opportunity to teach himself
skills that would help him to restructure his life and allow him to
support his family.
""Through open source, I rekindled an old flame, so to speak; I
taught myself the very skills I use to support my family and I get
to give something of value to others for free. And, as a result of
this opportunity to work in a field that I love, I also reconnected
with my college sweetheart, and am now happily married."
