Who is Andreas?
In 1995, after seeing his father use AIX, Andreas started with Linux. Having used Slackware for several years he finally switched to RedHat while he was a trainee, because for him it felt much more production ready at that time. Becoming the companies system's administrator during his time as a trainee, he needed to find a replacement for RedHat Linux after the RHEL/Fedora-Split. Andreas stumbled upon WBEL which eventually lead him to CentOS in 2005.
After Andreas quit his job to found a company with one of his colleagues in 2006, he had the freedom to get more in touch with the community. Today he tries to help out at as much CentOS events as possible and uses his spare time to support people using CentOS and to contribute to other free software projects.
