"When did you start using linux and at what point did you decide
to develop Ubuntu tweak?
"I started using Linux when I just started my college life at
late 2006. I was learning C programming then, a friend recommended
that Linux is a great platform to learn programming. So I started
my Linux life from the Fedora Core 6. But after just one week I
switched to Ubuntu 6.10, because Ubuntu had a better community in
China , and also had very good and fast repositories/mirrors. I
fall in love with Ubuntu immediately, and switched from Windows in
just one week.
"After half years? both happy and hard time with Ubuntu, I
realized that Ubuntu was not so friendly for Chinese people,
because after a fresh installation, people had to config the font,
input method and many others. So I decided to develop an
application to help the newbies to easily config Ubuntu."
