y name is Marcel Berlau I'm 31 years old and I live in the
vicinity of Cologne / Germany in Roesrath close to the airport Cologne /

For 10 years I was an airmen in the Luftwaffe and now I work since last
August for an IT-Company in Cologne. I do system-integration.

Since December I'm responsible for everything about Linux here in
Cologne for my Company and on the other hand I'm one of five guys for
all the stuff about Xen.

Presently our customers use a lot of SLES environments but we think at
the end of the year we are also able to present RHEL.

I personally use Linux for about 8 years now in the private. Starting
with SUSE Linux 8.0 I switched quick to Red Hat Linux 9.0 after I bought
an Red Hat Magazine at the store and I was fascinated about things
working in RH but not in SUSE out-of-the-box.

So I stayed with RH but I was a little bit worried about the step to
the community with Fedora. But since FC 3 I use Fedora as the
main-system at home.

Also I always try to look beside Fedora with virtual machines of
Debian,Ubuntu an other Linux flavors.

So why I want to become an ambassador? Because I want to give the
Fedora community something back. I'm not very good in programming and
maintaining packages but I hope as an ambassador I can help to show
outside of the official and unofficial forums and mailing-list that
Fedora is an very good state of the art Linux, easy to use free and
open-source and with a lot of ideas.

My plan is to represent Fedora here in Cologne and around to various
LUG's (Installing Parties for example) and if possible at different
kind of activities.
