Re-Imagining Linux Platforms to Meet the Needs of Cloud Service Providers


"What is your role within KDE?

"Romanian translation work and i18n.kde.org technical administration."

"How and when did you get involved in KDE?"

"At the end of 1998, I realized I hated the situation that forced me to use proprietary software. Since then, passing through rather big pains, I tried to get rid of any need for Windows and other software that I wasn't able to pay for. At this point, Linux, an older acquaintance, became my best friend. In March 1999, I obtained KDE-1.1.1 and I hugely liked it, especially the idea that I had the code and I was able to change it to my will. When I saw how easy I could modify visible strings thus being able to do translations, I started to translate KPackage 1.2. Toivo Pedaste encouraged me a lot and so the translation of documentation followed."

"How much time do you spend on KDE?"

"3-6 hours a day. But there are times when I work nothing or even 10 hours."
