Speaker Profile I'm an Bachelor of Engineering in Computer Science from UVCE, Bangalore working with Yahoo! Inc. I've been working with and on Linux for about 7 years now.

I tend to be more interested in system development and system programming. I've been working on the Yahoo! Unix messenger client. And yes, right now choices are GNOME, C++ and vi. Any questions?
