My first GNOME post

Hi!

This is my first entry on this blog and the first entry on any blog from some time.

But I’m very exciting because this is my first post on my new GNOME blog and I just got it as well as my @gnome.org.

For me this is very important thing, because I’m GNOME user from 2000 or so but I got into the Hispanic GNOME community almost from the same time. Gnome-Hispano was my first step into the FLOSS world and GNOME was the project in which I was born as a wannabe_free_software_developer.

I still remember when I meet with telemaco, alo, acs, rodrigo, garnacho and some others gnome devs. They become soon very good friends and gave me the tails to follow for growing as a developer.

At least, at the beginning, I was more into the philosophic part of the FLOSS thing and GNOME community inspired me.

I’m still proud of my first live distro (based on Debian and some script from Knoppix) Gnome-live. This distro was a just 180 Mb live CD with a full functional GNOME Spanish desktop. We (Gnome-Hispano) used it to show the (at least, the Hispanic one) world how powerful but still easy was Linux.
I’m talking about a distro from 2001…

I remember lot of friends and friends of other people who tried it and tested the beauty and easiness of a clean and fancy desktop. That gave me great moments :-)

OK, GNOME wasn’t on that time so nice, easy, powerful, eye-candy and so on as nowadays is. And even now is not that good. But for the concept people had on that time of Linux world, was fair enough, I think.

Although I was more into the distro world, I liked to program or translate for GNOME. But not much as I had wished. So now I’ll try to fix this. I really like to collaborate more in GNOME.

Anyways, I got some things in mind and I hope to have time (the work and some minimal social life don’t give me so much spare time) for approach them.
We’ll see…
